Buffalo, Indonesia

Photograph by Andrew Ang, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Photos

This buffalo was cooling down in a puddle of muddy water. This image I captured was on one of the Komodo Islands in Indonesia. Only three islands in Komodo have the Komodo dragons. I gave this image the title “Buffalo's Last Moments” because this buffalo is unfortunately on the menu of the vicious Komodo dragon. I was using the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens. For this image I captured it at f/4 and focused on the eyes.
