The African Buffalo is one of the “Big Five” animals of Africa. The buffalo is known for its power and strength and attacks without notice. Here two male spar for the right to mate. Notice how dangerously close the horn came to the contender’s eye. No mercy is spared in mating season. This shot was taken from an open jeep on the Thanda Private Game reserve in Mkuse, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa witha 70-200mm lens handheld.
