I can't remember the first time I saw the buffalo family, but I remember two things about them:
1. They were so close to home
2. The baby was still small (I mean 'small' in terms of a buffalo, of course)..
Well, I kept seeing them every now and then, and whenever the opportunities presented themselves to me, I tried to take pictures of them. The pictures never came out quite as expected, though.. :-(
Until the other day, when I was waiting for the public transport, and I saw the buffaloes were bathing in the river below the walking path. I decided to take pictures of them, and I was happy to find out that the pictures came out nice.
This time, the 'baby' buffalo was not small anymore, but I still love the sight of a buffalo family grazing and bathing so close to my home and I actually get to see them often! This is really something rare, for someone who is not living in a village around a paddy field..
It is really a nice feeling to know that a little piece of nature still exists around me.. :-)
Maybe.. just maybe.. next time, I can walk past the buffalo family while walking with my sons, and I can take their pictures together (my sons with the buffalo family).. :-)
I can't wait to take pictures of the buffalo family again.. :-P
