Nice capture. Excellent lighting and detail. I like the texture of the mud on him and the blurred background looks great.

Great shot of this "Big Boss" of Africa.Very good POV! showing the mud all over its face. the BG Blur is superb.
Have a great week end ]
Well, this big fella looks mighty pleased with his spa treatment. : )
Another example of your excellent eye for catching these amazing wild animals doing their thing. Your notes were very informative and quite complementary to the picture. Very fine details showing the texture of all that mud on that fur and horn. Good colors and light. Thank you, Loot, for a great capture. : )

Sorry, I am short on time tonight as I am competing in a car rally tomorrow morning so I will be up early, so just a quick visit. Nice shot and fully deserves the green smiley. :-)

Hi Loot, looks like he's gone through a tough game of rugby.
Super shot, and the look in his eye gives the impression that he is quite calm and placid. He certainly doesn't look even a tiny bit aggressive here.
Well composed, good lighting and sharpness. Very well shown my friend, TFS.

Nice portrait of this buffalo. Well composed and exposed. The background could have been a bit more smooth.

Beautiful portrait of the buffalow in its elements. The colors and details. The note is excellent and gave me so much more knowledge. Again a great example of your excellent eye for photographing wild animals.

Pragtige dien!! Wys jou wat 'n modder masker vir mens kan doen!

Ek moet sê dat ek hierdie Wikimapia skakels wat jy deesdae in jou notas plaas besonder geniet. Daarmee kan 'n mens dan ook sommer sien wat is al die ander fotos wat jy reeds by 'n spesifieke plek gefotografeer het. 'n Groot dankie vir hierdie ekstra stukkie moeite wat jy doen.
Hierdie modder deurtrenkte buffel profiel is net so 'n genieting. Ek sien jou lens was op die lang ent van sy vermoë so ek neem aan die buffel moes dan seker aan die ander kant van die pan gestaan het. Dit maak die detail op hierdie foto soveel meer besonder aangesien dit sekerlik 'n uitdaaging moet wees om daardie lang lens stil te hou onder sulke omstandighede. Pragtige werk.

This guy surely enjoyed himself in the mud and you could not have chosen a better or more appropriate title. This is a great shot of this guy in his natural environment. The pose of your subject is terrific and the details you present him with are great. This is indeed a great capture of this animal, showing the texture of all the sludge on its fur and horn. Good portrayal of true colours and light. Thanks for sharing.
