African Buffalo‘s one a morning drive through the Mara and spent a little bit of time photographing them. This one bull had a Yellow-billed Oxpecker which was really irritating him, as Oxpeckers tend to do, and every now and again the bull would attempt to shake the Oxpecker off of him only to have the bird return within seconds to continue pecking at his skin. I watched this behaviour for a few minutes and then finally the bird was in the right position, the bull was in the right position and the moment the bull twitched I fired and got this image. I love the look on the bull’s face where for a brief moment he looks his irritating companion in the eye. One often finds solitary groups of old male Buffalo’s in wildlife reserves throughout Africa. There are two schools of thought or theories as to why the older males spend their golden years away from the herds. One group says that the herd kicks them out when they get too old and the other says that older male Buffalo’s choose the solitary life themselves as they get old and grumpy. Personally I like the latter explanation and I guess one day we may have a solid explanation for this behaviour.

other prints in the series toned and processed in the same way. Once the entire print series has been completed you will be able to purchase sets of images that will compliment each other and fit within any decor theme. So for instance there will be no less than 5 other images with the same toning and theme as this image which will form a set but of course each image may be purchased individually too. Enquiries regarding this print may be directed to email@example.com with REF: MM-X6858.

lion for a short while one morning in the Maasai Mara. At one point he stopped looked straight at me and I grabbed this image of him with his entire kingdom stretching out behind him. There’s often too much focus these days on extreme close ups of animals filling the entire frame, even I’m guilty of that, but I like to often try and capture the animal in his environment. Lions are often sleeping, lying in bushes or in some or other place where there is something obstructing the image so when I saw this scene I had a little jump of excitement as I clicked the shutter. Print, stock or editorial enquiries for this image may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org with REF: MM-X7066.
