Cape buffalo are amongst the most powerful species in Africa. They are big animals whose mass and temperament often suggest unattractiveness. This profile shows the curves and fissures that define the character of a buffalo.
African Elephants enjoy playing as much as any animal. While mud bathing is functional this young bull appeared to be having more fun than seriousness. We had approached him in a small boat. We slowly drifted forward and the elephant seemed to be oblivious to our presence. Capturing the photo was only a matter of timing and holding the frame while the boat pitched about.
