Weekly Photo Challenge: Express Yourself

I don’t think that humans or even dogs are the only animals that can express themselves.  We’ve seen virtually every animal we’ve visited on our trips into the wild do exactly that.  Some are looks that mimic human behavior and are therefore very popular and often published.   Probably less recognized but just as valid are looks and behaviors that capture the true “nature of the beast”.  I took this photo of an African Buffalo in Uganda last year – you can see why they are affectionately known at “mud boys” as they go about their business and “express themselves.”

    • Cathy – probably great for the complexion…though you wouldn’t know it by looking at these guys – even after they “shower” off in the rain….

    • Macmsue – thanks so much. For such large, kind of cumbersome animals, they can still get their feelings across 🙂
