Wow! Great stuff. That is one big elephant! "Does that rhino bite? No, but he'll ram the heck out of ya!"...LOL!

Simply fantastic. What an incredible experience. I can't tell you how much I envy you. I especially like the first rhino shot.

When we saw the rhino mother and child (http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...65&forum_id=80) coming out on the road behind the car I asked my wife to reverse. She refused, claiming she hadn't learnt to reverse the left hand steered car yet. So we went on ahead a bit, when this guy came out in front of us:
Kjell,

Nice series. We still have to see more when u are processing your media.
I would say if you brought along your A600mm, the lens could also serve as a good defence weapon. You never know what you would need in such close encounter

Daniel, that reminds me of a story from my childhood:

Every morning the big elephant came walking his usual path to the waterhole, not taking notice of how he stepped in the anthill in his way. The ants of course were mad about this vandalism, and decided to put an end to it. Next morning they organized an ambush, all the ants waiting behind the big trunk.When the elephant came, they all jumped onto him and went all over, hitting, biting and kicking to give him a lesson for life. At first the elephant didn't notice anything, but as he felt something itching behind his ear he shivered, and all the ants fell off. All but one, whokept hanging from the elephants throat, jaws deep in his skin.When the rest of theants saw her, they started yelling and shouting: Strangle him, Betty, strangle him!

I'm not sure the elephant would have noticed me, smaller than his leg, or my hitting him with a lens no matter how big.:lol:

Those are great, I love the close ups!

Shifting with the left hand seems strange to me, is the shift pattern reversed also?

Fantastic shots! I'm glad you were there and I can just enjoy the photos. Those animals are just too big for me.
