Little Big Boy

By challicew
Hi there, many thanks for the comments and votes on yesterday's upload!

Another of my passions...photographing wildlife, and we are indeed so blessed to be living on a continent with such a variety of wild life.
Elephants are among my favorite and I can spend hours watching and filming them. This was taken at Addo Elephant Game Reserve about a 45 minute drive out of the city I live in. We've had terrible droughts and we came across huge herds waiting in line for the water hole in their specific "families".

Excellent shot. Black and white is a great choice as it lets the texture of their skin come out.
