[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A most magnificent animal. We were extremely close and you can see him pawing the dust with his right hoof.
Unfortunately the only camera I had was the Mavica CD300 (uuuggghhhh). Sorry about that. But the photos are still spectacular.
This particular Elephant became increasingly nervous with us around.

I like this shot because I really get a sense of the size of this creature. There's the dust floating around that he has kicked up, and to me, that sets up the mood. Yes, he's nervous, but this creature knows he is much bigger than you.

I also like the composition, his natural environment, and also, I love how his trunk reaches the ground. I've never seen an elephant up close and this one is nicely done.

Hello Gary,
You can actually see the elephant is nervous. Now, get away there...:-)
