How could you not love elephants, even with all their wrinkles! This bull put on quiet the show for about 20 minutes, throwing dirt on himself, moving around feeding, and just generally being his great photogenic self. Then it was time to stroll. Having had enough of our company and providing ample opportunity to get off some great shots, he just ambled off, offering his less photographed end as an ample change of scenery. Taken in Kruger National Park, South Africa

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at

    Yes, how could you not?? This capture SOOO makes me smile, and of course great notes as usual. Aren’t you putting him into any groups for greater coverage?
    (p.s. noticed your replies are going in comment boxes rather than reply box – cheers :)

  • Oops…thanks Carol, I’m so obviously a newbie!! And yes, I’ve been thinking of adding some shots to a group or two, but have to figure out how all this works.
