[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The elephants are vegetarians. Their trunk is used for tearing off branches of tree, uprooting grass, gathering fruits and depositing food in their mouth. They consume between 200 and 300 kg of plants per day. So and because they are protected, they take part unfortunately in the vegetable impoverishment of their habitat to the detriment of the other vegetarian animals.
This photo was taken with an objective of 135mm associated with a lapping machine of focal distance. It was next contrasted, slightly saturated and croped.
By hoping that this photograph draws your attention, I await your critique.

Beau portrait pour ce magnifique éléphant. C'est intéressant de le voir se nourrir avec sa trompe. Compliments.

Yes this does draw my attention. The composition is very nice. It is not easy to compose these gentle giants so that the photo has impact. Just the right POV, well exposed. Very well done.
