The composition of V1 is superb Colleen. The curl of the trunk seems to balance the image beautifully and of course those wrinkles are the best! Ann.

I love it, especially the second picture, elephant left, has proboscis with a special texture. as if has rings. I would play with a zoom on his trunk, I think it would come out something new
And yes, please more elephants, very nice animals!
