MASS: 600kg

These are gregarious, shy creatures with fair sight, poor to good hearing and a good sense of smell.
When persued and wounded they are very dangerous!

I was born and still live in Africa.
Live a life close to nature, where I get the inspiration to do what I love most…., “Photography”.
Where I live and what I do is my destiny. I am grateful for the privilege

    This, I assume, is Water Buffalo. He is giving you a resentful, melancholy look as though saying, “You would KILL me? After I’ve been so NICE to you?” They do not distinguish between cameras and guns, the creatures. This is a marvelous photo! You have quite the knack for perfect captures of unique critters! I love it!

  • Thank you so much again, I always appreciate your kind and inspiring comments Navigator!
