[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the last photo of the elephant I call little ear. So far I could not find anyone in our area that could tell me more about it. In this photo you can see both ears clearly.
I've seen some wonderful and interesting things happen at the Sabledam these last two days and will be placing it soon.

Enjoy and comments are welcome.

Hello Natley,
Another beautiful photo of this elephant with one and a half ear. It looks very sad in this phto. Great sharpness, details and natural colours. Excellent POV and composition.


Very interesting subject. I have recently seen an elephant who's ears did not flap like they should and seemed like the top half of the ears and those muscles were not working. Good sharpness and detail of the subject shown in your image. I love the post - very informative.

Hi Natley,
A Truly fantastic shot with sharpness and detail. Beautiful composition with our true natural Africa colours. Great POV!
Love you,
I did some research and the only logical explanation is "in-breeding". For instance a farther/daughter. This is very seldom observed in Elephants.
