[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Its end of the winter season, natural waters are at there lowest and the bull elephants are looking for mating partners. The elephants are on high stress levels and are uprooting and breaking down trees all over, its best to stay clear.

First of all I am very happy to see an elephant with its tusks in its natural environment.
The green branch in the foreground on the left does not bother me because you had to photograph in conditions of wildlife. I understand.
I like this moment, the elephant seems to smile despite his stress.
I wish all the best to all the elephants of the world.

An overall good captured action shot of the elephant. Detail and focus satisfactory. Always be careful - he knows you there.

Hi Erwin,
The detail in this picture is really good. He looks HUGE. I imagine you kept a pretty good distance while taking this shot. Very nice wildlife capture.


Erwin it is like a movie picture so amazing and fascinating
well done again ERWIN KRUGER

He looks sleepy! Not at all like a testosterone fueled stress machine. Nice picture of an elephant in the environment though, the green leaves to the right add to the image even though they cover up the body of the animal it adds depth.

Bom dia Erwin,
Great shot, my friend. It is also to celebrate to see an old beast even with their ivory tusks.
Nothing more to say that has not already been highlighted by those who preceded me.
A hug.

Hello Erwin,
My favourite wild animal but I will not mess with him. Very good quality and the vegetation shows the natural environment very well. I wonder why the one tusk seems to be out of alignment. Would he have had an injury? Or are my eyes fooling me? Small pity about the branch near the top left corner, but what can you do. You cannot pose him for a photograph. Not him. Very well done indeed.

Ciao Marine, great capture of superb creature in breautiful action, wonderful natural colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
