There was an argument outside of my front door this morning. I didn’t open the door to observe, but I could hear two chaps exchanging heated words. Actually I found it a little funny and I pictured both of them looking like this.
An African Buffalo. Photo taken in Botswana in 2010.
I should mention that no one was hurt during this verbal sparring. And I hope it stays that way.

You should have opened your door a crack and snapped a pic. That could have been an interesting blog photo LOL!! I love this photo too though – that is one funny looking dude :).
I wish I had some decent photos of American buffalo to compare the two.
As long as they don’t lock horns…
They may in the future, but I really hope not.
Some little antelope in the background?
I think an impala. they are everywhere there and are quite beautiful.
That buffalo looks like he means business. I’ll keep my distance.
Glad to hear there were no injuries. I would have stayed clear of the argument as well.
I don’t like confrontations much–that is unless I can hide behind a door and eavesdrop. But I don’t want to get involved.
Oh my…so what exactly were they arguing about ???
I wasn’t quite sure really. But they were passionate about their cause.
Botswana again! I love Botswana!
I think it’s my fave so far. I loved being there.
Good to know!!! 😀
Haha testosterone filled air all around!
Yes…funny when you aren’t involved. And I was safe in my flat.
Lol. I often get into this mode TBM…. 🙂
I know I can be stubborn, but I’m not a fighter. Stay safe 🙂
Nice i like stubborn people…. I don’t like being submissive. One correction in your photo… You could have copy pasted 2 buffalo faces in the picture…it would really depict the 2 ppl in the verbal argument. ROFL
Maybe next time I will.
He looks rather belligerent 🙂
Would you pick Botswana over Tanzania?
I haven’t been to Tanzania so I really can’t say. I fell in love with Botswana and I hope to go to Tanzania someday. Sorry I’m not much help.
No issues, any reason why you picked Botswana over Tanzania?
The whole trip revolved around the World Cup in South Africa in 2010–we had tickets to two matches. We asked our travel agent for options near South Africa and Zambia and Botswana were proposed. While in Zambia and Botswana we met many people who were passing through because of the cup. I believe Tanzania is further north (sorry I don’t have a map handy) and we wanted to simplify the traveling.
Thanks TBM, I am just exploring our options 🙂
So you are planning a trip. Wow I’m super excited for you! and slightly jealous, but at least I can travel vicariously through you. I’m kinda hoping you choose Tanzania so I can get tips about what to see and where to go there.
The planning seems quite overwhelming at the moment 😉 Shall let you know what we decide.
Good luck! I’m super excited for you!!!!!
Personally, i wouldn’t argue with anyone who looked like that.
I wouldn’t either.
looks like my boss…
