These two cape buffalo were very cautious while passing by these two girls. Taken in Ngorongoro Crater late morning.

Awesome capture! A little close don't you think? Hopefully you were in a vehicle. Very well done. #432847

Thanks Anita and Kim. It was very exciting. We were in a topless Range Rover so while standing we had a wonderful view! The girls must have eaten. . . they weren't interested, however the buffalo weren't taking any chances. #2678679
