Very good image for both timing and detail for what looks a near midday shot, just love elephants,



I'm going to kruger in 6 days and this is just what I need to get my juices flowing.

Fantastic wildlife image complete with elephant and bird to give sense of scale.
The bird doesn't seem put off by the elephant's size!

Magical moment Steve, the attending Cattle Egret is not impressed. Did you wait long for this image ( or others ) and was you on your own in the vehicle.?

hi Ron. Waited a long time and took a lot! This is actually one of the elephants from the herd photographed crossing the dry lake in line. They were looking for water and, obviously, found it!
There were either 4 or sometimes just 2 plus driver/guide in a large open-top Landrover.
