Elephant Calf

By challicew
What is a Game Reserve without elephants? My favorite of the Big 5. As with yesterdays upload, this was taken in the late afternoon an hour or so before gates closed for the night. The sun was behind the elephant and I was blessed to be able to get a good shot of this little ones reflection as the herd came down to the waterhole. I think this is why both yesterday's and todays are a little dark. Both shots were taken arround the same time. I didn't want to lighten anything up on either photographs as that's the way the light was!

Thankyou all so much for the c/c's yesterday. I'm off to the rehab today so I will catch up with you later.
Have an awesome day!

Nice, unusual reflection shot! I wonder how this would look flipped 180 degrees, and the 'real' elephant cropped off? just a silly thought...
