Smaller than the African Elephants, smaller ears too.
This picture has been taken in Cologne-Zoo where they have a big elephant area in which the animals seem to be at ease.

Hi Anne, This Asian Elephant looks very different to me because she/he is clean and the skin looks so soft. Perfect focus with good details and clarity. Regards
Anna

Hello Anne!
A very nice shot of this little fellow in good sharpness and details. Its a pity that it closed its eyes at the time when you clicked. Good to see the almost natural sort of environment at zoo. Thanks for sharing,
Best Regards,
AKBAR

Hello Anne,
Once again you post a wonderful image with a lovely animal. Amazing sharpness and excellent clarity. Outstanding colors. The light and details are great.
Thanks for sharing!

Bonjour Anne

Une très jolie photo dans un belle lumière, prise par un excellent
POV et cadrage, aussi photographié au bon moment car cette
amusante pose de l'éléphant fait la beauté de la photo,
aussi on peut voir clairement dans ta photo que un reflex
(DSLR) Full Frame donne une qualité d'image supérieure
que le reflex (DSLR) avec capteur APS-C, certes la lentille
aussi a son mot à dire dans la qualité de l'image, TFS

Hello Anne,
Good capture of this baby Asian elephant. It's pose is like it is saluting you. Good sharpness and DOF.
Thanks and regards,
Smitha.

Liebe Anne,

freundlich anmutendes dickhäutiges Wesen, das hier in der hellen Wintersonne einherschreitet, den Zweig eines ausgemusterten Weihnachtsbaums im fröhlich erhobenen Rüssel - ein schöner Bericht aus einem weitläufig angelegten Zoo, in dem die Tiere sich zu Hause zu fühlen scheinen.
Prima ausbalancierte subtile Farben, gestochen scharf (wie von einer 5D in Deiner Hand nicht anders zu erwarten), klare dynamische Komposition, und etwas reizvoll Anekdotenhaftes: Die fein beobachtete, mit sicherer Hand entschlossen eingefangene charmante kleine Begegnung mit einem fremden Wesen, mit dem wir uns für einen kurzen Moment auf Augenhöhe wähnen und wir das Gemeinsame mit ihm entdecken.

Mit Dank und herzlichem Gruss aus Wien,
Peter

P.S.: … und Gratulation zu 40000+!

Ciao Anne, great captur of superb creature, fine deyails, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very welldone, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonsoir Anne,
un beau portrait dans une belle lumière. J'aime bien le mouvement que l'on peut imaginer.
amicalement
Pierre

Hello Anne! Smooth guy. Fine scene. Superb pose. Excellent scenery and background. Wonderful take. Well done!

Hi Anne,
It seems someone didn't read the TOS he agreed with when joining the site - zoo photos are permitted, if fence or other human activity isn't visible. In my opinion this is a good photo, nicely composed with excellent balance among the foreground - subject - background trio. Perfect usage of lights as well. A good photo in my opinion, and everyone knows there aren't wild elephants around Köln, or anywhere else in Europe.
Thanks for the valuable post, kind regards from Ireland, László
