[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We have often come across a waterhole where a lone elephant would be chasing away any animals that want to drink water. And this was the case in this photo. What you can also clearly see that it was in musk and then they tend to be quite aggressive. The poor warthogs just couldn't take a drink of water.

Enjoy and comments are welcome.

An Elephant bull in musk. They secrete a strong smelling liquid from a gland behind their eyes, signaling that they are looking for females.

Interesting picture with fine color balance good detail and clarity Natley. Bravo!

Good capture Natley nice balance and DOF. Cropped a little tight for me I like to see a little more space around the subjects it gives them room to breathe. If that is not possible then less to the right and more to the left gives the elephant room to travel.

WEll done to you


Hi Natley,
This image shows just how large the elepant is. It has nice details and tells a great story as well.
Have a fine TN day.

Very well captured Natley. The warthogs in the pic gives a good idea of the size of the elephant. Well exposed with true colors.

Hi Natley
This is a really nies against the light shot. Very nice detail even though the front of the elephant is in the shade
. Well done!

Bonjour Natley,
Impressionnante image compte tenue de la différence de taille des sujets !!!
L'éléphant est bien mis en valeur dans une belle lumière et sous une bonne profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

A fine, frontal capture of a magnificent bull elephant in perfect focus and exposure Natley, the brightly coloured natural surroundings and the frightening size difference between the bull and the warthogs make this a real fine image. Thanks for sharing it.
