Good morning...
Thank you for your votes and comments and especially to Kathryn (Kathrynlouise) for her UA, much appreciated.
Some bum shots for you today....A herd of elephant were walking down the track in front of us so I took the opportunity of some bum shots...love their swishy tails. V2 is a mono of the lead image.
Have a great dayGrinGrin

I think this thread has bottomed out now...sorry.

I like these, a bit different but interesting and elephants from any angle will always get my vote.
