[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Near Lebata Camp in Kruger National Park - It was late afternoon when I came across a herd of elepahnts with a very young calf. The herd immediately surrounded the enfant and one adolescent male made a false charge. The matriarch of the herd stood "hiding" seperate from the herd. After 5 minutes the matriarch trumpeted and the herd disappeared into the bush.

This was also an example of how well elephants blend in with the landscape. I stood there watching them walk into the bush with the last swinging tail entering the bush. If I had not seen them walk in I would not have know they were there.

Michael,

Welcome to TN.
Good to see you have posted a pic from my favourite place in the whole world - Kruger National Park. The Kruger will fall under Limpopo Province if you were in Letaba and not Free State as you have it as a location.

The scene that you have captured is a typical one for that region with the Mopane trees very evident around the subject. The side Lighting is soft and I look forward to some more pics from the KNP that you may want to post. Your note is informative of the scene that you encountered too.

Almost all my pics that I have posted are from the KNP, so have a look and let me know what you think of some of them. TFS,

Sheriff
