Wow, how nice looks on green! Most african posts I've seen here have a reddish-yellow dry vegetation on BG.

A very clean and interesting shot. Almost everything in the picture is so perfectly done (Light, composition, the moment- water still flowing down its mouth), it makes the viewer to feel part of the image. Your note gives that extra value addition to the picture. My only regret is that, the birds who play a rather significant role in the picture should have come fully inside the frame.
Thanks for sharing

A superb shot, Nico. It is very rare to see a shot of an elephant in the wild at such close range and in a frontal view at that. The details are amazing and the water from his mouth adds a nice touch. The backdrop really gives the sense of his natural environment. Your excellent notes contribute to the feeling of drama. Excellent work and TFS. : )
Sorry about your cold breakfast... but definitely worth it!!!

Quite an intriguing story to go along with this excellent photo. I like the water on this big guy's face and dripping from his mouth. I also really enjoy the audience of rather amused looking birds watching the big bull elephant.
I wish the picture went a little farther to the right so that we could see clearly where the audience of birds ends... Oh well, such a minor nit.

it's marvelous, this majestic elephant in this wonderful bush, I love the trees and the clouds, the colours are marvelous.
The birds are a little funny, seems they are watching what the elephant is doing.
A lovely shot, thank you very much, bye

Hi Nico, lovely shot. The colours and pose of the elephant are superb. I do have a reservation about the composition. I find my eye is taken to the whistling ducks on the right hand side and not to the elephants face where I feel it should be. But, it's a lovely shot. Well done.
