Photographer's Note

Water buffalos in Timor-Leste and in most developing countries are used by farmers to help run the rice paddies (soften the soils) before the farmers are planting the rice. When the buffalos are not working, they often go find grass to eat, sleeping under the shade of tree or swimming in the water. Along the coast and rice paddies in the eastern part of Timor Leste, I saw these buffalos swimming in the mud so I stopped and took some shots and this is one of them. Hope you enjoy.
