Just as we left the bird hide near Phalaborwa gate, this small group of elephant came drinking at the nearby waterhole.

Daniel, Nice group shot you got. Thanks for posting.

I too, saw my first elephant in Kruger just inside the Phalaborwa gate...he was a huge bull with monster tusks, but sorry to saw that I was unable to get a photo.

Nice work,


This is a really nice elephant grouping you captured. The range in colors of them makes it special. I love the curled trunks on the outer two and the water dripping. Really nice. I did a workshop to tone down the brightness of the water and background so that all attention would stay with these wonderful animals.

I really like this composition, Daniel.
The pose of the elephant on the right is wonderful.
I also like the drops of water streaming out of their trunks.
Beautiful light and amazing color range in this group of pachyderms.
TFS. : )
