[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Although they are not usually dangerous, these buffalo can become so if one of their number is threatened. Although lions will take a young or sick buffalo if separated from the herd they will rarely attack a full grown animal.
Focal length 500mm (750mm). I used a beanbag, without a doubt the most useful means of support when shooting from a vehicle.
For anyone interested or thinking about buying a long lens for wildlife read my reply to Boonie.

Hi Vic
That's a great capture, they realy stand out, looks hot out there.

Hi Vic
They look pretty happy to be in that mud! Impressive animals, and well captured - the 500mm has really brought us in, with great detail and good depth of field.
Nice shot

That's a great shot Vic!
Fabulous clarity and effective composition.
Well done - Vincent

Yea and the second most useful is the size of the lens - dont think I would want to intrude on their "mud" - well captured and composed.
