#2 MasaiMara Big Five - Cape Buffalo

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 17 August 2018 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

In Africa, the big five game animals are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros, elephant, and Cape buffalo. We were fortunate to see the Big 5 in 24 hours - so I will be sharing them over the next days.
This large african bovine can live in herds of 100s. Although they are herbivores and only eats green stuff, they are unpredictable and dangerous.

Maybe they have a good reason to be on guard. They live in the middle of the beasts and must be vcoimaksa if you plan to survive. These pictures are stunning.

He saw you ! I hope you have a good telephoto lens or you run fast !
A beautiful composition with golden colors and what a look this buffalo has!
(The second comment from "The Krop" made me laugh!)

@Jean-Luc.M: Ha - yes I laughed too at the vegan joke. And yes, safe distance and a good telephoto lens with extender for the extra distance:) :)
