No Zoom Needed

Although I'm really looking forward to seeing what type of photos I can get with a big zoom lens I didn't need one for this shot. My son-in-law and I were out for a hike about two weeks ago and were making our way through a heavily wooded area and this is what we ran into. We almost walked right past him even though he was less than ten feet from us, standing in a creek bed.

Needless to say, it startled my son-in-law, he was leading the way at the time (it's always nice to let somebody go in front of you to get rid of the spider webs! LoL) when he turned to see what the movement was and found a six foot tall buffalo staring him in the face.

We very slowly and gently made our way past the buffalo but I had to stop and take a couple of photos while I was there. He didn't look like he was going to mind and I couldn't resist! It's kind of like running outside with the camera when there is a tornado, it just isn't the wisest thing to do but sometimes you just do it anyway.

  1. Good shot, good narative to go with. Personally I would have been more comfortable with a zoom lens and a few more feet between myself and that big fellow... You're brave!
