Fantastic! The skin looks like velvet - and that warm lighting - wonderful! Very adorable. Why can't I ever photograph an elephant or alligator? Probably because I live in PA and don't travel much Seriously - absolutely breathtaking shot. I love it!

Default Good lighting

Nice shot of contrast and a great nature shot - good lighting and wonderful texture.

Well Done,


Rod

That's a beautiful shot, Tom. You have a wonderful eye for both composition and content.

They look as if they've just had a wonderful mud bath. Don't elephants do this for a specific reason? I can't seem to dredge it up out my own muddy waters.

(Ohenry, were you the kid in the rear of the classroom who was always making the other kids laugh when the teacher's back was turned?)

Oh, dear Lord, you were one of those. I taught school for a little while and was driven nuts trying not to laugh at one little guy in particular who was named, quite appropriately, Dennis. I always silently added on "the Menace."

African pachyderms use mud as protection against the sun, one quarter inch of mud equals spf700. It is also thought that it is for protection against insects.......I think they just like to play inthe mud!
