Buffalo

15th September 2012
I find that Buffalo can be a difficult photographic subject. Lone bulls, or groups of two or 3 old kakuli are easier to capture, but they don't tell the story of the massive herds of several hundred which we often see during the dry season.

Capturing the endlessness of a herd of 900 buffalo as they come to drink at a lagoon is a challenge I'm still working on achieving. For now, here's a couple of photos of some individuals from a large herd that I saw yesterday.



This big bull was covered in Oxpeckers which all climbed on top of his back as we approached, ready to fly off if we came too close.



And this old bull stood nicely with a foreground of dry grasses.
