In the dust, Cape Buffalo

By rontear  
Part of a herd of 200 or more that were drinking beside the river Kwando in North east Botswana. They started to move off as we approached, creating this dust cloud. The dry season was in full swing, these two individual males had come out of the herd to warn us off. Cape buffalo are notoriously bad tempered.

Nicely caught, the mix of light and dust give it real atmosphere and help you to imagine being there - those buffalo look real mean!
