[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This small elefant lives with itīs mum and dad in the lake manyara np.
There are a lot of elefants more the in the ngorongoro crater and the serengeti np.
We saw a lot of the during our safari tour.
While a safari you are very close to the wild animals(sometimes)
its a great experience to see such great animals not even 4 meters away.
Hope you like this shot with the mum or dad in the background
best regards Toba

Hi Tobias,
great shot of this little one, it's nice to see an animal like this in it's natural environment, it must have been great to watch. Great colours and DOF, i did a little workshop to try to reduce the slighty over exposed patch on his back, hope you don't mind!
tfs, look forward to more from this place!

hello Tobias

excellent close shot of this young elephant, with fine POV and DOF,
excellent luminosity of the image, great sharpness
and details of the elephants, TFS


Hey Son!
Nice to see you're in action again!
This is an excellent shot, very well exposed, with very fine details!
I have a similar shot, but it's of the Asian Elephant, found here in India.
