Got My Eye On You

Taken at Kruger National Park, South Africa

The Big 5, everyone wants to tick them off thier list when they first visit Africa, unfortunately many don’t believe when they see a Cape Buffalo that they’re anything more than a cow. Buffalo are in the Big 5 because they’re historically one of the most dangerous animals to hunt on foot. (It was a term coined before we’d rather take photographic shots rather than ones with bullets.) Extremely unpredictable, buffalo don’t usually give any warning before charging and can cause a lot of damage when they decide to – horns, weight and feet all being used as weapons.

On this particular occassion, I found a ‘placid’ pair of males feeding by the road – always keeping an eye on their observers.
