THE DAILY POST – BULL FIGHT – AFRICAN STYLE

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.

Have a good week 😊

THE DAILY POST – COUNT?

Yesterday this large herd of Cape Buffalo crossed the Thanda Safari savanna. We used this aerial shot to count them. Can you guess the correct number?

PS: It is a quite tricky question because it is often difficult to make out the calves in the mother’s shade …

THE MORNING POST – IMPRESSIVE

This is a Cape Buffalo portrait I shot yesterday evening. This bull had mudded his horns to look more impressive and intimidating. I am not sure it worked 😊

THE EVENING POST – DRINKS AT SUNSET

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.

Have a good evening.

THE DAILY POST – TAKE OFF

This Red-billed Oxpecker was using the boss of a Cape Buffalo bull as a take-off platform 😊

Have a good week!

THE EVENING POST – CLOSE TO POWER

Late this afternoon I passed a small waterhole just as this old Cape Buffalo Bull turned around and came a bit closer to give me a good look. I had my iPhone on eye level with this impressive creature to get this special perspective shot 😊

PS: Please do not try this yourself unless you know how to interpret the buffalo’s moods.

THE MORNING POST – ON THE MOVE

When we were returning to Thanda Safari’s Villa iZulu on a very windy afternoon we had to pass a large herd of Cape Buffalo. This is a short ‘drive by eye level video’ I took on that occasion with my iPhone 😊

Have a successful Monday!
