Sorry I couldn't get the last elephant in the frame fully!
This mother didn't quite like my trucks' sound, as we drove around...
Just look at her glaring at me while she feeds her calf!

I pause, and go back to my garden series tomorrow...I will try to complete this series soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

This one is a grand herd, Goldy.
The grasses are so rich in the Park, I guess the elephants are having a great time of it; they look very healthy.
It has been a very enjoyable series on Asian elephants and thanks for sharing it.

I am enjoying this series of captures of the elephants Goldy. Well seen and presented photos. I really wonder if these guys have great memories... the older I'm getting, the less I seem to remember... ;)

Take care... hope all is well with you and yours... :)

Hi Goldy,
Asian Elephants, numbers have increased, had lots of ...
A difficult situation. Asian Elephant is coming to ... have to run away ...!
High grass and beautiful composition with Asian Elephants.
Best wishes,

Sometimes it is too hard to cut out and appears this way in order to get teh whole image..nature itself isn't really perfect in our eyes..only in our Creators eyes...so many thing happen which we do not know...but I always enjoy you images such as this...for these I think are among those which you love to image!

Hello Goldy,
Another a beautiful and great capture of Elephants series.
What an excellent composition of this elephant herd. Brilliant composition and POV!
Best regards,

hello Goldy
beautiful composition with this 'enormous' family,very fine photo

Dear Goldy,
Excellent capture of the herd. Which part of chaur/grassland it is? I do see lots of land without grass also ( I presume it is Dhikala only!). TFS

Hi Goldy,
Excellent capture of this group. I like the young ones. Nicely composed though you couldn't framed the RHS one. They all are on sharp focus. TFS - Regards - Adil.

Hi Goldy,this is a very tender scene and a very nice group,another time you work very well to have the best sharpness as possible! My best compliments,have a nice Sunday,LUCIANO

One day I dream that I shall cover the world just to take photographs of wild animals, and elephants are on my 'to do' list. It's photos like this that captivate me and inspire me to try harder, putting more effort into what I do - and making a point to be proud to be among many great photographers of this world, regardless of where we originate from.

The babies, the way the adults are looking on, and the panoramic style are enticing and promising - for the babies hold promise for another generation.

Thank you for sharing.

Kathy :-)

Merhaba Goldy,
senden yine çok güzel bir fotoğraf.
Bu sevimli fil ailesini çok güzel görüntülemişsin.

Hello Goldy !
Another impressive elephant-shot from you ! You were very lucky to be able to watch these animals, and it's nice from you to share these great moments with us. I also like the mother lookingat you, gives the picture a very nice intensity. Nicely composed, even if you had to cut the elephant at the right side, natural colors, great POV. Very well done !

Coucou Goldy! I missed so many of your pictures. To me, pictures of elephants remain like something out of a movie or a picture you could gather somewhere on Internet. Or at the zoo. Then I suddenly realize YOU took the shot. Wow. It is perfect. What an animal, how impressive and regal. I would love to meet them in the wild and witness their higher intelligence. Your picture attests to that. Thanks for this nice series!


Hello Goldy
your Asien Elephant serie is very great, and this one is not an exception,

Have a good night
