Hola Juan,
Un impresionante ejemplar macho de búfalo, el más temible animal africano!
Saludos cordiales.

Hello Juan,

Did you take this picture in the early afternoon? You can see the brightness of the sun reflecting on the horns. Its best to take pictures early morning or late afternoon when the sun light is not so bright. Great focus on the horns and facial features. But this was probably a difficult picture to take as this Bufflo is dark in composure. I will call this picture the "Silent Picture".

Well done!!!

Hello Juan !
This buffalo looks very impressive, with his huge horns - I woudn't want to be in front of him ! :-) You also managed to capture him with great sharpness, excellent details, nice natural colors. Maybe I would have tried to get the whole buffalo on the picture, instead of cutting him, but well, it's my opinion and the picture is great as it is. Very well done !
