This looks very imposing in b/w. We know the colours, here we see the wonderful shape.
Not so brave then Ron. I take back what I said on your previous pic. Grin

Now an elephant in the lakes would be a scoop Ron, he's even had his trunk in one of them by the looks.

Discretion is the better part every time with these wonderful beasts.

I can here him/her rumbling from here.

The skin texture may well show up better in B and W, Ron: an imposing specimen he is too.
