Subject: African Buffalo Dimensions (inches): 28 x 37 Medium: Graphite with a touch of coloured pencil Description: With nose in the air, the old bull stared at us intently, stood his ground but bore us no malice. We safely past him with hearts in our mouths, probably saved by our low profiles and the beast's uncertainty The African buffalo was often regarded by the old hunters as the most dangerous of the Big Five and I have endeavoured to portray the bull in this drawing with an air of authority and a creature not to be meddled with. His alert pose is further enhanced by the redbilled oxpecker flying off his nose in alarm from some perceived danger. These birds have evolved stiff tail feathers which are used as props as they clamber all over their hosts seeking parasites from every nook and cranny. They are commonly seen in association with giraffe, antelope, domestic cattle and buffalo.
