hello Tom

it is a great shot of the old male Buffalo close
and the Cattle Egret on it, the frontal POV it is
great with that wonderful glance of the animal,
i love the bokeh of the background with showing
some details, the light is very beautiful, TFS


Black&White is a good title Tom. It is very often use in South Africa as well for comparison!!! Superb capture of this highly respectful two horned creature! Jee... Tom I hope you have been in a car or at least far from this monster!Superb smooth colors and flawless composition! Bravo!

Hi Tom
Nice presentation of Water Buffalo och his friend. I have similar shot from Kenya but during my visit it was even heavy rain. You can easily darken this bird in Photoshop and get both of them to look good...

Hi Tom - amazing.. This guys are really tough.. great eye contact with good mouth action. TFS

Hi Tom,
superb shot of the animals. The tough buffalo is so lively and the cool crane is so special.
the vegetation is so pleasant and you composed it so lively in wonderful surroundings.
