[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I had captured this two African Bush Elephants between Skukuza and Lower Sabie, Kruger National Park, when a big herd of Elephants were crossing the road.

* The African Bush Elephants (Loxodonta Africana) is the largest animal on earth, being up to 13ft tall and 10.4 tonns.
* The adult African Bush Elephants generally has no natural predators due to its size, but calves are vulnerable to Lion and Crocodile attack and rarely the attack of Leopard and Hyena.
* We humans are the Elephants major predators. That day isn't far when statue of the Elephant will be more than living one.

Great catch, friend Srikumar !!! And at other times you have shown to have a wonderful power to capture instant reaction "not ready"; and this indicates that they are not coincidences, you have the gift of quick capture, obtaining images of great documentary wealth. Salve, Srikumar, friends greet you !!!

Hello Srikumar,
Great shot of these impressive looking African Elephants from your trip to Kruger. Nicely composed and displaying beautiful natural colors. Entire frame is in sharp Focus.
I can't imagine living in an area where this is a common everyday sight. I just watched a show the other night on TV about the illegal poaching of these remarkable animals in Kruger National Park for their ivory tusks.

Ciao Srikumar, great capture offamntastic couple, fine details, splendid light, excellent sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
