Wednesday we did our weekly waterfowl count at Laguna Atascosa NWR.  I always take the camera along to capture images of the birds and wildlife that we run across.

As  I reviewed the images I noticed that we'd seen three nearly identical pairs of animals, and here they are!

These two Nilgai bulls looked like a single animal until they moved apart.

These Feral Hog piglets were most likely from the same litter. Notice that they are still wearing their stripes.

This is probably a mated pair of Crested Caracara.  I don't know that you can tell male from female, as they appear to be identical.  They can probably tell though!!
