Elephants are still my most favorite animal. This was just one of a big herd of elephants that enjoyed a bath at the Sabledam. It was quite difficult to just get one alone but I finally managed.

Enjoy and comments are welcome

Hello Natley

Excellent timing to have shot this photo,
the elephant's pose and expressive glance
it is bringing dynamism to the image, TFS

Hi Natley
I had exactly the same problem with vultures: in a crowd it's impossible to get a good picture so you have to wait to get an individual one
that's a great action shot, the eyes stand out nicely which is not always easy in elephants
good one

Hello Natley,
Looking at the thumbnail I was once again thinking "My favourite animal. How sad that they often are so tortured and humiliated elsewhere", and I was thinking about an image that Carl had uploaded when I also said to him that it is my favourite animal. Opened the thumbnail and you said the same. Not much of a co-incidence I suppose. A wonderfully sharp and very pleasant image to view with the animal enjoying itself so much in its natural habitat. Beautiful activity. Well done!

hi Natley,
lovely theme. well captured mood and action. Elephants are my favourite too.
it's so cute!


An excellent pic of the Elephant at Sable Dam.
The pic must have been take near midday as the light is sharp and not easy to control. With the light challenge, you have ensured that there are no shadows on the subject, composition is good and the pic is detailed and sharp.

Hallo Natley
What a great action shot! This must have been exciting to see all this taking place in front of you, and lucky you for having your camera and gear ready to take this at the time. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Bonjour Natley,
Bonne coordination de la vitesse et de la profondeur de champ permettant d'apprécier le sujet dans une attitude originale.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Natley,
What a beauty!! Excellent natural colours, sharpness and detail, light and perfect POV.
Love Carl
