A Blackbuck’s Story

A male blackbuck (Antilope cervicapra) captured in the beautiful Blackbuck National Park at Velavadar, Gujarat close to Bhavnagar. The blackbuck is seen here sniffing the air to detect if a female is ready to mate. Probably not the most appropriate strategy for human males to adopt. While the female blackbuck might welcome and even dote on a male for this admirable gesture, in humans though, a similar action might elicit a well deserved slap across the face, which may turn, if not perfectly black at least most certainly a shade of deep blue.
