Water Buffalo

By DavidA  
THis little fellow took an unhealthy interest, which had me paying full attention as I'd just learned that, of the big 5, this is the one that kills more people than any other!

Forget Lions and rhino, this is the one to watch out for! At least that's what the game keeper said!

Nice of him to pose for the pic!

Not your usual portrait work, worryingly good eye contact, I think you've pulled!

I think you mean cape buffalo rather than water buffalo. Water buffalos are from Asia and are reasonably docile. Cape buffalo are found in Africa, and anything but docile, as you pick up beautifully in this picture.

I can claim no expertise in wildlife, perhaps water buffalo is a colloquial term locally?

Either way I certainly didn't want to get any closer to this one!!

I'll put a pound on the focal length being 200mm rather than 70mm!! Great shot.
