14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
The Buffalo - A True King

I have digitally created this image from pictures shot at Masai Mara. Even though it is said the King of the Jungle is the lion, I feel the true power is with the Cape buffalo. The Bird on its nose indicates their gentle side whereas the giraffe on top indicate that all the others are bowing down to the 'Power house' and the two lions are basically indicating the entrance to the Kingdom of the Buffalo. The Color Red was chosen as it represents the Warming of Earth to which all living beings need to adapt.
