Wow Herman, I'm having a hard job getting my head round the idea of driving along and seeing an elephant standing right beside the road, can I assume they don't pose any danger? We think we have a problem with moose, but that pales a bit with this. Thanks for showing these two fine shots.
Rgds., Jim

Great captures and spectacular animals to see at the side of the road Herman, it's a lot more exciting than my roads we only see drunks and rabbits.

She is a beauty Herman and what a catch to find her.
I love elephants and it is nice to see them natural and not enclosed in the zoo.
Nice one…….I see I have some catching up to do. Now the grandson is back home
I should have more time. Apologies for the clicks instead……..

No 2 seems more pleasing to me Ashe is feeding and there is a bit more space to the left.
To great shot of his majesty, I wasn't aware you were so close to elephants!

Ok , I really like v2 very much. It is the bit of grass an the well chosen background that make the elephant stand out with all the detail.

I had the same reaction as Jim V.!
I can't imagine seeing an elephant by the road.....I would think that might pose a bit of a problem if they decided to cross in a hurry. I am amazed. How lucky you are to see such things.

Could they be Selati and Kidibone from Albertinias Garden Route Game Lodge? See here .
Or maybe they are Sam and Tsotsi at the Garden Route? See here .
Or perhaps they're simply in part of the Game Reserve.

A lovey shot of this giant of a creature Herman. I know they can get very roused but they always seems to me that left along they are quite amiable.

Two lovely captures Herman, and lucky you, even with a fence between you - its bunnies, foxes, badgers and occasionally sheep we see, not quite in the same league, eh Wink ... Carol Grin

That is one welcome sight!
In London you might see a fox or a few rats, sadly to see an elephant we would have to visit the zoo...
Lucky you to see that... IB
