Nice peaceful view of one of the most dangerous animals in the world!
Great frontal view portrait with excellent sharpness and lighting against a pleasing blurred natural BG.
TFS and have a good weekend,

Hi again Annick
Another splendid shot from you and that huge but impeccable lens of yours...i think your trip there was quite a workout: lifting that 6 kg lens up and down all day...beats going to the gym :))
Anyway, the close-up here is formidable presenting this apparently calm animal, but very dangerous for the ones how know it and, worse, meet it.
The pose you captured this one in is again outstanding and that pile of grass in his mounth makes it look a bit funny.
However, there's nothing funny when examining his horns - big and old, they look like some impressive weapons when dealing with big cats, hyenas or of course humans.
Splendid work, my friend!
Bravo and TFS

It's wonderful... I like grass in its mouth - it looks so peaceful like a cow in the field... Amazing sharp and detail - as usual in your photo. Good background and light.

Beau portrait de ce spécimen.Bravo pour la netteté et l'éclairage.
Very impressive portrait of this guy. Especially I like the quality of the texture reproduction. You managed to create a true three-dimensional picture of high quality. Bravo and TFS.
No need to ask if you had a good holiday as I have been looking at your postings from Africa.
I am looking forward to some more as they are superb.

Thank you for the gift... I'm not too sure I'd really want him... too close... The photo however is fantastic. You always seem to get more than just a portrait. There is always more "life" in your shots. The turn of the head, the expression and the mouthful of grass makes it a great shot... along with the technical excellence.

a superb shot of this buffalo.
Those horns look very formidable!
+++ The clarity s top-class, conserving a tonne of detail and keeping the edges crisp. A striking head-on POV that has excellent eye-contact.
An effective central composition.

A wonderful portrait of this buffalo.I did not realize they were so dangerous.
The focus is spot on with exquisite details.
The lighting is excellent and the colours are natural.
I really like the composition,and OOF BG.
The capture of this grazing buffalo gives it a nonchalant look.

Once again the detail is superb. A bonus to catch him eating and staring at your camera.

Seems to say: "Don't mess with me!". Great to see an animal like that upclose and personal. Especially from the comfort of your own home... ;)
As always excellent detail, light and pose! Keep 'em coming!

Schitterend portret van deze Buffel
ik zou hier ook met een grote boog omheen lopen maar u legt hem eerst vast op foto om hem vervolgens rustig verder te laten grazen.

Wonderful picture, hope to see this as two page spread in some magazines soon :) You have captured this wild animal in a deceiving calm mood. The green grass adds the needed colour to the great texture.
TFS, Regards, Anil
