[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Somehow I just love this photo, it sort of tells a story.
During our last visit to Kriger Park we came across a herd of elephants drinking at a waterhole. The larger ones crowded the waterhole and this young one decided to try and get a drink from the dam that feeds the waterhole.
I am not sure whether he could actually reach the water level, but he gave it a good try.
The photo looks better to me in black and white.
I hope you like the photo

Hellow Peter,
In my opinion a classical shot with the "rear contact" replacing the "eye contact".The b & w as well being a great choice.

Oh Peter, this is so cute. I have many photo's of elephants drinking at the dams but never saw this before. This is the kind of photo I would frame if it was mine and I like the black & white. Very well done and thanks for sharing.
Regards
Natley
