Oeeeee I love Buffy and cousin, pappa is certainly a tough character, don't think anyone must mess with him
Little G Raff, certainly was not much help but Darky sure would be helpful to the investigation I think.
Thanks for sharing these characters with us, hope they help
Those young Buffs sure were cute!
And little G Raff - actually saw him drinking from his mom - looks quite strange with the long neck and all!
Bushbuddies, what a perfect area for an investigation. Lovely lion cubs and great bird
Hi cheetahlady! Great area indeed - wish I could be there again right now...
Thanks for the compliments!
Your photos of the feathered reporters are stunning
And how very fortunate to find Dr Lappet in an accommodating mood and willing to help
I am also really impressed with the thoroughness of your investigation
An excellent idea to interview the families - I imagine they have lots of inside information about the local mafia.
I will be following the unfolding investigation closely
Melphie - you are so kind with your compliments!
Dr Lappet could be a bit intimidating, I must admit...
Not the Sexyest dr around!
Always try to be thorough. That is the key to any good investigation!
Mr Buff has some impressive horns
..Can see he is a "no-nonsense" type of guy, looks very knowledgeable .
G Raff ... has many year in the area and seen the comings and goings from his high vantage point.
... has been very observant during this time, and managed survive.
Investigation progressing well.
I really spend a bit of time interviewing mr Buff - man that guy has a set of horns on him!
Very impressive old buff! Progress to continue...

I love the old family portrait, so evocative of yesteryear.
So sad that we nearly destroyed this heritage. Indeed, as sapiens we have to be aware of our criminal minds.
I do love buffs.
I need to follow up on an investigation of my own as soon as possible.
So true. When I saw those two old bulls - just had to take a pic, and it looked even better in sepia. I am getting homesick myself! That's part of the reason why I'm rehashing the memories here...
I am sure you met a lot more fathers protecting the lives of his family members
But really love your buffie portraits, the giraffes pictures and your stories.
Good fathers - most of them - there in the Satara area. Really strong and compitent protectors!
Thanks for the compliments!
Ag dankie, Cheetaikie!
We've seen some of our biggest herds around Satara, but then old Shing gave it some stiff competition!
Bushbuddies, glad the buffs were willing to let them be interviewed. Just love the 'old photograph' - beautifully captured one and the composition is excellent.
The big guy - the one with the most impressive pair of horns - WOW. I guess he would go for more than the R4m a buff went on an auction recently.
Great the giraffes also assisting as they always give one a different perspective on a situation..
Most enjoyable TR- sorry mean to say 'Investigation'...
Thank you Kaapsedraai - I also like that pic of the old buffs. They were posing so nicely in the early morning sun, unfortunately, the sun was right behind them!
Still has a nice feel to it though... And that buff!
My husband and I were also discussing how this was a guy who many a hunter would love to meet. Huge horns!

Lovely to meet the Buff family...........thanks for introducing them.
I was told on one of my first visits to Kruger (1976) that when a male Giraffe goes dark like that, it is called a "stink bull" because they give off an unpleasant odour.
Eventually they get so smelly, that they go off on their own.
How interesting - I never knew that. I should have used my olfactory organ more when investigating and interviewing the old chap!
I wonder if Buff Sherlock is hiding in that herd.
His help in the case could be invaluable.
Will try and find any Sherlock in any herd to help...
Welcome on board hilda!
We have been missing you...
Great to have you on board again!
