[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When you are in the Krugerpark and you leave your camp early in the morning, then every day it will be a surprise what you can spot.
And in the envirement of Mopani there are a lot of lonesome elephants. These are not always nice when they are on the road.
But this morning I left the camp and took the Tzende Loop. I was driving slowly and then suddenly on the left side of the sandroad I saw this family drinking out of this pool.
Great to see it from so close by.

Thanks foor looking

Hi Vivian,

Luckely not as a roadblock this time,well captured composition with nice colors tfs



Krugerpark seems to be an amazing place to visit. There have been so many excellent photographs posted on TN from that place, just like this one. I'll definitely have to visit that place some time in the future, it looks excellent.
That is a very nice photograph. I am sure you were happy to see this family and take some pictures. Great work and TFS.

Best Regards,


What a lovely photo of a family group taking a drink. The lighting is perfect! Good shot!

Dag Vivian,
In groep vinden ze zich precies minder bedreigd. The untouchables. Heer en meester, 't is maar dat ge het weet:-).
Speciale gebeurtenis aan de oevers van de Tsendze loop.

What a fantastic and impressive scene, Viv.
Great details and exposure on this group of elephants of all sizes.
Fun composition with them facing every which way.
The baby elephants are darling.
Too bad that elephant to the right got cut off.
TFS. : )
