"Ticked"
African Cape Buffalo
18" x 24" Pastel
Price on request

This massive Cape buffalo was standing off the side of the dirt road we were driving on in Nakuru National Park in Kenya. Notorious for their bad moods, only the hippopotamus kills more people in Africa than the Cape buffalo. This particular buffalo seemed slightly irritated as we watched the mother oxpecker pick ticks off his back and feed them to her hungry young birds. It occurred to me that he was 'ticked' in more ways than one.
