A shining complexion.
My boots were polished before I left home.
Buffalo in the company of Red Billed Ox Peckers.

During our weekend of the 11th of March the rain hampered game viewing. The plus of the rain was that it presented textures on the animal's skins. Buffalo tended to be more black with shining horns. Elephant bodies glistened and the rough texture of their skin tended to stand out.

Rain and photography
by: Jennifer

Mario and I love photographing in the rain, the colors pop and the animals behave differently allowing you to get some unusual shots.
