Old Buffalo

By Hermanus
Took this at iSimangaliso Wetland park. Did not get a clear Buffalo shot this time around Smile This old guy obviously had a few interesting encounters in his life.
We spend the night at Clarens, a picturesque town surrounded by mountains and a haven for artists and artistic people - photos to follow ! Today we travel to Richmond where we will spend some time with friends on their lovely Karoo farm.
Please forgive me for not looking and voting today either Smile
Have a super day - and CONGRATULATIONS to my British friends on Andy Murray's amazing feat - we watched it while visiting friends in Zululand on their huge sugar farm.

A good image.
Just think you have to watch out for auto focus.
The grass area seem to be a lot sharper that the face.
If you can see if you find out how to control spot focus in the camera.
When you do that you can move it around and get the image shape where you want not where there camera thinks it should be.
Other wise it is a very eye catching image..

What an amazing capture, I look at his face and it makes me feel emotional... He look powerful but at this stage of his life also fragile and could be easy prey... It's a great image Hermanus... I am enjoying your superb wildlife images...
