[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've nothing new to add, this shot had become too heavy to post with the an 800 dimension.Just made it a little lighter.
And yes, Bob...Where are you?
Is all well?

I pause in my meditation, or what you see as dedication to my sister, my garden series...
The emotional stress my family is undergoing, is huge.
So I decided to take my nephew, Mark, to the Jim Corbett National Park; he being too young to comprehend a lot of what his mother (my sister Caroline)is suffering from, but being old enough to get scarred from the events as they unfold now.

This shot, I dedicate to Bob Shannon.

Thanks for stopping by.

bonjour Goldy
tes photos d'Elephant d'Asie sont de plus en plus beaux, celle-ci est vraiment splendide !
la composition, les couleurs, la très grande netteté et le décor naturel sont magnifique
j'adore celui qui mange de l'herbe et qui nous regarde droit dans les yeux

Hello Goldy,

They are indeed lovely animals!
The group of three makes an impressive impact and I wonder what it is like to meet them in real...
A well framed scene with good details, I like that one of them is eating grass!
