A fine one of a bull Desert Elephant: the feet do look rather larger. I like the frontal POV, the composition and the light management.
A nice portrait and thanks for sharing it!
Enjoy your Sunday,

What I liked here is the contrast, very finely done. The head to head viewpoint is great and I only wished to see more background than this closeup. tfs.

I had always thought that there could be very little, if any, real difference - and you have confirmed it. We didn't see them in October - but missed them by very little. Anyway - an excellent image - great pose and exposure control.

Looks like you were about to be atacked by a raging bull elephant. You really captured that moment of speed and agression.
The details and light are very beautiful and the chose DOF made the elephant stand out perfectly.

the frontal POV of this photography and the eye-contact
of the elephant with you, gives to this image dynamism,
sharpness and details are excellent, and appropriate vertical framing, TFS

powerful frontal approach with a lot of dynamic tension.
Looking quite unpredictable, indeed.
Wonderful bright backlight creates a very pleasant atmosphere. Tastefully nicely presented. Thank you!

A great close up look at this young bull in heat. I guess you would have been pretty wary while shooting this one.
He's definitely aware of you.
Good even exposure in the harsh light.
Nicely timed and composed.

This makes me jealous, what an amazing image of this big guy. You have managed to get great details in the shadow and sun with your exposure. The capture has a lovely colorful background too, thank you my friend.

An amazing beast to meet along the way.
The focus is terrific with excellent detail.
Nicely composed in the frame.
Well captured in a natural environment.
I wish I could get there and see all these creatures.

I have heard how unpredictable these bulls can be, especially 'in heat'.
You wouldn't want to be too close to it Annick.
I like his pose here; it is as if he is swaying a little.

Great shot my friend, he appears a little tipsy to me like he's about to keel over!
very good composition with beautiful light and colours.
Interesting note to boot.
