Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge

African buffalo

It seemed ordinary. An early-morning Jeep ride through a game preserve near Kruger National Park.  Not much in sight.  Not many sounds.

But when the driver veered near this watering hole, something we’d never seen before unfolded in front of us.  A convergence of buffalo. A gathering by the waterside.  A find for those of us who never dreamed we’d see so many so far away.

    A somewhat leisure convergence, I suppose. 🙂

  2. Great photo. 🙂 I might also note, these placid guys are noted for their ferocity. I once waited in a VW bug while a herd checked me out, determining whether I was something to charge. 🙂 –Curt

    • I would have been scared to death, Curt, to sit in a VW and see what happens! Aaaaggggghhhh! You are a brave man!! We heard they could be fierce, but watching them casually sipping water and standing solidly for a few minutes made us think they were in a zoo. NOT!

      • It was worrisome. (grin) I constantly had the feeling as I travelled through East Africa that I was the one in the zoo while the animals roamed free and observed us. LOL –Curt
