hi daniel,
beautiful picture.
nice moment of capture.
the water droplets are very well seen.

I love the water dripping from this magnificent elephant. He seems intent on getting to his destination and not on you as he plods along. I know they desperately need the water because of their skin. I love the swirling muddy water around him and the green in the background. A wonderful photo that I find endearing.

Hallo Daniel,
Goeie close up...en met de scherpte zit je gebeiteld.
Korte sluitertijd is wel een noodzaak om vanaf een boot te fotograferen en je hebt dat blijkbaar uitstekend begrepen ondanks de mogelijke dreiging..
Goede wildlife foto.
