Amazing shot, full of life indeed, you could not possibly pack in more of that. Flying objects in this concentration are usually mosquitos... ;-)
Pity the birds are OE - difficult to correctly expose white birds, and I guess you went out to get shots of the larger dark thingy behind them!
As is, very good with a very high visual impact!
P.S. I think these are egrets - cattle egrets probably. The beak is straight and how they hold their heads/necks is very egret-like.

Une belle composition,la prise de vue est unique et originale.
Merci et félicitations !
La surexposition reste un problème sur une image qui aurait été parfaite sans. Magnifique composition, un tableau naturaliste en somme.
Merci du partage.

An amazing photo. What a great scene you captured. I only wish I could have experienced it in person.
Even though the birds are a bot OE, the impact is very good. This is something special. VEry well done.

Amazing capture of this flock of birds, and elephant.
Definitely energetic and full of life.
Congratulations and thank you.
C'est étonnant de voir des éléphants en France, je pense qu'un petit correctif serait nécessaire au sujet du lieu de prise de vue je pense? Mais l'image est superbe.

Hi Didier, yes it is a little noisy as you say and the Egrets are a little overexposed but that doesn't matter too much here as it is full of life and it has a marvellous atmosphere.

Wonderful capture, Didier. It totally reminds me of the Hitchcock film which gives me nightmares everytime I see a big flock of birds, LOL! I love the elephant shadow in the background. Well done!
