Thank you for c'c on the Buffalo upload always appreciated.
Today no 3 in the Big 5 series - this Elephant snaped the young tree like a match stick and just grazed away in his own time - at some point he crossed his back legs - don't know if he needed to spent a penny Wink or just did it to be even more relaxed - hope you enjoy - Ina

you are so lucky to capture this in the natural environment, zoos are fine but not like the real macoy....

Great shot, Ina. They can reduce a fair sized tree to matchwood in no time. Very nicely exposed shot and captured with very good detail.

A fantastic shot that shows the Elephant in his environment and with super texture to his hide. A cracker Ina.

Brilliantly exposed Ina. I am sure I could count every crease in the skin texture. First rate.

Must be so satisfying and exciting to see animals in the wild and to be able to capture them behaving naturally.
