What an excellent timing, my frined! ;)
Splendid capture of one of the most caracteristic habits for an elephant, one, however, rarely seen on TN.
Great POV and light, excellent details and lovely colors!
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Andrea,
Funny I posted also oliphants today.
They are so beautifull and big when you can see them so close by.

Very well captured moment, Andrea. The pachyderm has created a veritable dust storm to get rid of the vermin!
Very good natural shot.
TFS and take care.

Hello Andrea,
very nice natural shot! Great moment you captured here. Very good POV, sharpness and details. This is a very good composition. Thank you for posting.

Ciao Andrea, foto molto interessante, non ero al corrente di quest'abitudine degli elefanti, buon weeek end anche a te, ciao Silvio

Che dire Andrea....
bellissima foto!



spero un giorno di poterti accompagnare nello scattare queste fotografie


Hi Andrea,
Interesting capture of elephant behaviour. Good eposure and timing...I guess getting a little closer might have added impact but probably a little difficult given the environment. What gives with the 30D shots? Are you changing systems from Nikon to Canon?
