Some animals seem to just wait when they come to an empty water hole.  They looked so sad, but I think that would be giving them human traits.  For them, it's probably just the way it is.  And the rains will come soon.
For some there's another way to get a drink, of course.  Some of these guys looked a little old to be still nursing to us.
There are animals perfectly adapted to this environment.  This was the first time I'd really seen ground squirrels up close--adorable.
There must have been something there to eat because the black faced impala were grazing away.
We would occasionally pass other highlights like these giraffes.
I have, of course, cropped these photos for size and made them all jpg--trying to keep the size of the file somewhat reasonable.
