Wild Africa: Loxodonta africana

By Gezina  
Thank you for c'c on the Buffalo upload always appreciated.
Today no 3 in the Big 5 series - this Elephant snaped the young tree like a match stick and just grazed away in his own time - at some point he crossed his back legs - don't know if he needed to spent a penny Wink or just did it to be even more relaxed - hope you enjoy - Ina

Great shot, Ina. They can reduce a fair sized tree to matchwood in no time. Very nicely exposed shot and captured with very good detail.
