Running Forest Buffalo
Photographer: Sebastian Kennerknecht
Location: Lope National Park, Gabon
Story: 
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.
