The African buffalo, or Cape buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a large African bovine.Owing to its unpredictable nature which makes it highly dangerous to humans, more dangerous than lions or other predators. This buffalo is a willing subject for me to photograph and also clean and pretty in the evening light.
