Hello Gerard,
What an impressive animal which I imagine can be very intimidating by it's large size and fearsome look. Excellent detail and beautiful natural coloration. Wonderful exposure and great DOF. Super job!!

Hello Gerard,
your trip to Africa must be a wonderful experience. There are so many exotic and exciting animals you have shared. Thanks for that, as I dont think i will be going there.
This is a stunning capture of the buffalo. The details are so special and exciting.
The eye contact is really splendid.
Sharp and clear body. Our buffaloes are smaller and less fierce .

Wonderful image of this huge African Buffalo taken with great sharp details and beautiful colours.

Bonjour Gérard!

Magnifique photo! Le f/16 parfait pour avoir toute la bête dans la profondeur de champ! Cadrage horizontale bien choisit! Très bon travail!

Very good pose under fine exposure and details.
