Not often I do mono images but thought this elephant image suited it... This elephant was right on top of us ...no zoom needed....
have a nice Sunday
That is mighty close! a super great shot!
Phenomenally close. Great shot.
Stunning detail of that elephant skin - he could do with some of my night cream!
The mono is superb Colleen.
Just seen V2 - lovely against the greenery.
V1- is head on. Superb details of this majestic tuskar. Great shots. I am enjoying all your game drive shots.
This is right in your face. Fantastic shoots Coleen. Peter.
Oh his poor tusk!! Superb images Colleen.. Loving all these nature/wildlife beauties.
How much closer can you get? This is an outstanding shot of this magnificent animal!
I love elephants. Only seen tham in the wild in India and Sri Lanka with pink ears...
My compliments on both images Colleen! Lets us have more!
Lovely set esp the profile.
Lovely and dynamic closeup,superb capture.
Hope you have more of these tucked away, Colleen.

I have had closer. Once an elephant approached my side if the vehicle. The Ranger said to me "just sit very very still" ... That was easy I was frozen with fear. The elephant put his trunk over me and smelt inside my camera bag with his trunk. Then turned around and walked off into the bush. Whew!
Two wonderful close-ups, Colleen, a majestic beast. Carol
A very well composed, exposed, captured, processed and presented wildlife image with great colour and detail Colleen. Image number one please "Superb wildlife photography"
Definitely close encounter and agree Colleen he certainly does do well in mono
both well captured, but V1 is and has been presented so beautifully
Excellent close up's Colleen, V1 a bit special,
Everything that Nathan said plus WOW, amazing images Colleen. Love them both.
That feels close
Just listening to a very depressing news item on the BBC about the scale of elephant and rhino poaching in Africa
Wow, love V1
Now this is a CLOSE ENCOUNTER -Superb detail - congratulations Colleen.
He could not have come any closer Colleen.
Brilliant detail but I love the colour as well
Two superb close ups Colleen! I don't think I would have been able to even lift my camera if so close let alone focus and take the images!

Brilliant detail but I love the colour as well
You know they are close when you can count their eyelashes
How could you get such a good image, my hand would have been shaking so much being that close. Love the mono.
wonderful close up Colleen I love this , great shot have a good day Patty
Great close up Colleen, V1 great mono image
Whenever I see pics of elephants these days I can't help thinking about how many are being slaughtered.
Superb captures Colleen.
beauties well captured.
Excellent close-up images Colleen.
Love the crop Colleen.
Quote: Love the crop Colleen.
It's not a crop Rende...it's full frame...the elephant was on top of us...
Luv the detail and chosen pov, excellent stuff, Colleen.
Two superb images, Colleen. Talk about close encounters.... great skin tones , comp, and POV.
I see you've been out with your 'elephoto' lens again, Colleen!! Two super close up shots, and like the abstractness of V1, so that's my fave
Great textures well suited to mono.
both special Colleen
2 superb images Colleen,
Top class closeup Colleen.
Nicely shot. Mono works as it's all about the skin texture.
In fact, this would benefit from a boost in contrast - you can often push mono more that way than you can with colour - to make the most of those wrinkles.
Super close up, 2 great captures.
Love all these nature images, v2 for me
Now that is what you call close Collen. Fantastic shots. Cathy
Up close and personal, very nice.
Excellent detail and the composition is wonderful.
Beautiful images Colleen well taken.
Wow you were brave to get this close, a marvellous portrait of this magnificent animal taken from a range of 18.7mm! The challenge has been set for Safari Simon, he must get a shot of an elephant from 10mm!
Super close up detailed images Colleen
Fantastic capture, love the closeness
