Kob Knobbing

Pakanyi, Uganda

I refuse to even write anything about this, this is just low hanging fruit. (That’s what SHE said!)

Aww, hell, now I’m typing. The truth is, I may or may not have watched/photographed these Ugandan kobs (try to) have sex longer than anyone needs to know. In my defense, though, it was taking foreverrrrrrrrr.

Sure, the buck might have been coming on a tad strong, and she might have looked like a child, but there were so many precocious antics on her part and so much indecisive flirting that even I was becoming exasperated.

If I were him, I would have given up a long time long ago. And honestly, I would have gotten bored watching it through my camera lens ages ago if it hadn’t been for this absurd and relentless little bird.

This bird just could not take a hint. He was so determined to be a part of this, that no matter how hot and heavy things got, there he was, right in the middle, inches from the action.

I wanted to tell him, "I know you two have a symbiotic relationship, but dude! Give your bro some space!"

Actually— that’s probably why she keeps changing her mind. You’re making things awkward, little bird!
