|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|When photographing elephants one always need to be aware of whats happening around and especially behind you as they can pop up anywhere and in a matter of minutes. It is also imperative not too cross over into their space and be aware of signs of agitation.|

I like the tight crop here showing the texture of the skin
Another excellent wild life documentary-series by a lovely expression of face 2 face!
BRAVO AGAIN ERWIN KRUGER
Bom dia Erwin,
Great exploration of textures and very interesting stitch crop.
A week of good.
Will elephants tolerate fill-in flash and were you close enough? Or will it annoy them in which case I will stay at a safe distance. I think fill-in flash could have softened the shadows or otherwise you could perhaps have done it in pp. Nevertheless, a fantastic specimen of my favourite animal. Well done.
