It's a shame he's stuck in a zoo for the rest of his life. Elephants are wanderers with a purpose. The purpose is the continual search for the water holes, in a zoo he has no purpose to live for.

Wanderer with a purpose - what a great thought!
you caught him beautifull, focus spot on, great detail and super presentation!

Glad to see that this was digitally manipulated Sandy, wouldn't have liked to be you if it was real. Now you'll have to explain how you did get this great shot of the elephant without running for your life. Wink
