This morning I had my favorite Buffalo sighting, ever! My guests enjoyed this energetic Bull Fight – African Style. I was able to shoot many good images and this short video clip with one of my favorite tunes from the overture of George Bizet’s opera Carmen as soundtrack.
After a day in the office I decided to spend an hour before sunset at Mgankla dam. It was very quiet at the waterhole so I decided to listen to an audio book. After about 30 minutes all by myself I heard a slight rumble. It was the start of a large herd of Cape Buffalo arriving for evening drinks.
This is my favorite picture from this evening taken with my iPhone.
Imagine you have a bit of an itch on your head and imagine that to give it a good scratch using strong sickle bush spines! You better have a large boss (the horn plate on top of the buffalo’s head) and a really thick skin.
This is a short video of a Cape Buffalo bull attending to such an itch. Have a good day 😊
PS: If you look carefully you recognize a Cape (Glossy) Starling sitting unperturbed in a tree nearby 😊
