Kalahari Kinky

Wildlife behaviour is a treat to observe and photograph. Yes, there are many many mundane moments where you just have to sit and wait it out. Take sleeping lions, for example...boring...until they suddenly get up and stalk something that ambles by. If you really want to capture some interesting - almost anthropomorphic behaviour - you need to pay attention to the smaller critters of the bush. The primates and the squirrels are good examples.

This photo shows a trio of Ground Squirrels in the Kalahari desert (Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park) engaged in mutual social grooming...at least that's what the textbook tells us is happening...but what's the first thing that comes to mind when you see this frame? LOL
