    Len,
    Just how close were you to the buffalo in pictures 1 &amp; 2? I'm hoping you had a REALLY long lens, or someone had a really big rifle, those things can get mean when you get too close!

    Thanks, all.

    Chris, on the last day of my first African photo safari in 2001, I realized that during the entire trip not once did I imagine myself shooting one these magnificent creatures. I probably never will.

    RBrowning, I was less than 50 yards away.
