This morning we spent quite a bit of photographic time with two old buffalo bulls next to the Sand River in the Masai Mara.
I find buffalo pretty difficult to photograph. Not sure why really I just do.
After getting a couple of shots the two grumpy guys moved into the thickets next to the river.
Shooting all done?
The old buffalo was still staring at us – like we owe money – but he had a lot of green foliage in front of him.
Manual focus through the leaves and on the buffalo, compose and click the shutter.
Different but a fantastic photographic tool to play with when you are faced with animals in a thicket.
We had great fun photographing these two bulls and great to see some people learning a new technique!
Right, time to get back out into the field.
There is a massive build up of wildebeest across the river and a lion kill close to camp so we’re in for another great afternoon of wildlife photography in the Mara.
Until next time!
