Very good capture of this African Buffalo with some friends.
You have great POV and composition, sharp details.

A great image with the little birds sitting on the Buffalos back.
Obviously very tricky light to work with that day.
I like the details of the patterns on the horns and the moist looking nose.
Pretty close to this animal. The Masai people call it 'Black death', you know. But this unpredictable bovid is posing very well.
You showed very well the quality of this 300 f/2.8.
I'm a bit puzzled about the blurred oxpeckers?
The bokeh is wonderful though.

C'est une excellent photo fort sympatique! I like this composition a lot with those to birds in background (I always find them fynny), the angle of the camera, details and composition. Well seen!

Very beautiful photo in excellent sharp details. Great natural colours. Excelletn POV, DOF and composition. The two Yellowbilled Oxpeckers are a big bonus.

I love this close in the face image. The very close approach displays well on the screen. This is a great portrait with details clearly seen, especially the fine hairs alongside the buffalo’s ears, the wet snout and the texture of the horns. I also like the blurred out oxpeckers as a part of your background. Great image with buffalo looking right at the camera. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
