Spring, 2011

This picture has been seriously doctored but I like it anyway.
This nocturnal scene was so dark that these animals were invisible.
With a little illumination from our light, these is very much as I remember the scene.

Given the fact that we were looking at water buffalo, this scene was altered long before this picture was ever taken.

I like the eyes in the upper right.
