Buffalo at the Etosha NP

Etosha National Park is a national park in the Kunene Region of northwestern Namibia. The park shares boundaries with the regions of Oshana, Oshikoto and Otjozondjupa. Etosha was first established in 1907, when Namibia was a German colony known as South West Africa. At the time, the park’s original 100,000 km˛ (38,500 mile˛) made it the largest game reserve in the world. Due to political changes since its original establishment, the park is now slightly less than a quarter of its original area, but still remains a very large and significant area in which wildlife is protected.

Hi Achim.
Very attractive meeting and nice photo trophy. I like framing of the animal a lot. Eye-contact is stunning as well as pose of the monster. DOF and details are excellent and natural light is too. My best regards and compliments.

Hi Achim,
really serious guy but stay put with the bird perching near the eye. Excellent moment well captured.
The composition is lovely showing the nature in action.
We do have buffalo, but it looks like this one is more tough and brutal.
