...........to continue yesterdays story. The impromptu photo session seemed to be going well, with the subject presenting various poses of his choice. Then I began to see the start of a pose that would only spell trouble! The first sign was the mouth beginning to slightly open then a more rigid body.
Turning to face me with legs in a wide stance, and tail up and stiffened, told me that the time had run out for anymore pictures today! So politely, as I snapped this shot while slowly backing away, he was thanked for the two minute photo shoot that was allowed before I just had to go!
These Buffalo are very large and very unpredictable. The best rule of thumb is to keep your distance.! They can move fast in spite of their size! I've heard it said that those who know them best tend to trust them the least.
