A night shot of an elephent - super stuff and an interesting note as well!
Lovely detail here, good impression of the texture of the Elephant's hide. I'm surpised at the f/9 aperture?

Great capture, must have been thrilling to be that close. The flash worked excellent in bringing out some nice detail. Did this not spook the elephant. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, this is a close encounter! I really would like to go to the Kruger parc (we have friends who have been there) but unfortunately because of my sickness (and the medication) i can't leave Europe for now... ;o) Hopefully that will change in the near future.
What camp did you stay in inside the parc?

What big, great are they, and so close.
I know that they can scare you.
But it still is an amazing beautifull animal.

So what is it about Elephants? I love them so much....but I have never had the opportunity to see them in the wild. I have seen them at our local wildlife park "Wild Life Safari" and have ridden on one there....but I think in the wild would be the best place to see and photograph them. This is a slightly different composition since it is at night gives the elephant a more mysterious look about him. For a night time photo you have really captured the color and clarity nicely!
