Good morning...
Thank you so much for all you votes and comments and to Peter (Ddodlefin), Mike_Smith and Netta1234 for their UA's ....much appreciated.
More elephants today for Silly Sunday.....we came upon a small herd of elephant, they had a couple of youngsters in the group. These two were playing, but the one youngster was much bigger than the other, In V2 , my favourite shot as I just love the little guys face looking up at the bigger one .....they sized each other up and then the one on the left decided to give the other a fighting chance and he knelt down on the ground (I told you they are fascinating to watch). They then decided to trunk wrestle. This went on for ages until they were tired. He then stood up, they slapped trunks like we would hands and walked off to join the others. My only regret is that they were in thick bush and i was unable to get clear images. The other versions start at the beginning of the game until the end. V1 is somewhere in the middle.
Have a nice Sunday, were 31 deg here today, a bit coolerGrinGrin

No regrets, please, this is a stunning set of images of animals in the wild and in context. My personal favourite is the parting shot, V7.

Well you may have been in the bushes, but they are still 'clear' shots as you can see what's going on. In any case, the vegetation just adds to the story, as they are in their environment. I think you've done a great job Smile
