Running Forest Buffalo
Photographer: Sebastian Kennerknecht
Location: Lope National Park, Gabon
It's still unclear to me why this Forest Buffalo (Syncerus caffer nanus) bull was running around. It did so for half an hour, at one point even charging a mother Bushbuck and her calf. Using a slower shutter speed and panning with the animal allows the movement to come across. The photograph was taken in Lope National Park, Gabon.
