Hi there, many thanks for the comments and votes on yesterday's upload!

Another of my passions...photographing wildlife, and we are indeed so blessed to be living on a continent with such a variety of wild life.
Elephants are among my favorite and I can spend hours watching and filming them. This was taken at Addo Elephant Game Reserve about a 45 minute drive out of the city I live in. We've had terrible droughts and we came across huge herds waiting in line for the water hole in their specific "families".

Enjoy!

Excellent shot. Black and white is a great choice as it lets the texture of their skin come out.
