Hi guys, just popping in to say hello [Hello !! :lol:]

We took a small vacation a few weeks ago, and here are some shots from it

1 - A baby elephant drinking from a waterhole - they learn to use their trunk, which takes quite a while, as the trunk has 150,000 muscles in it alone !! Here he is slurping with his mouth and blowing bubbles - the light was not fantastic, but I enjoyed the moment

The Cardinal - I like the green seed which offsets the colors of the bird

Lastly, a Cheetah - this beautiful lady walked our way, then turned her face into the rising sun, which gave her a real instant "makeover" - In photography, light really does make a difference !!

Cheers !!!!

Hyaena are ugly and greedy but this one is not.
