An African Jacana [also known as a lilly trotter], I've used a different crop here [vertical pano]to emphasise the theme

A couple of "trunk calls" - Elephants are difficult to photograph [they can look quite boring], so one has to try different methods to produce something eyecatching. This chap was playing with drops of water dripping from his mouth

Wonderful creatures, great shots, super editing. Thanks for posting.

BTW, the Hoopoe has my favorite scientific name among birds: Upupa epops.
