A very nice shot of these to elephants at play, nice colour and details. The notes are very good. It has good overall colour and tone I notice that it is cloudy, which helps keep the harshness of the bright sun and deep shadows at bay.
Thanks for sharing

Adorable capture of these Elephants from your archives, Anna.
That they are merely at play comes through strongly via their placid and non-threatening expressions and body postures.
The quiet and peaceful ambience of a cloudy day also adds to the appeal of this wonderful picture.

I am pleased, this theme gave your memory a jolt, and you remembered this excellent action photo in your archives.
I wish I knew, what they were actually expressing? "I like you?" - "I don't like you".....
I like the layout of your photo, the way you framed the two elephants.
How long did you actually watch them? Was the moment shown in the image the beginning or the end of the interaction? It is the sort of photo making me wish I was there. :-)
It is truly interesting to observe and compare the different shades of mud one sees in different Elephant photos. The elephants in this photo are more on the Red side, which seems to stain the skin longer... Clay? Matching the soil in the foreground.
Thanks my dear friend for adding your interesting work to my theme "Animals' Behaviour"

Eleohants are really interesting creatures and if we observe them we can recognize the great intelligence described in your note (even in the zoo)
Lovely scene taken in the wild, just too cute how they are tender in their relationship :-). Well shown with this almost square framing and with best sharpness.
Wow, that's a really sweet photo. Your composition is spot on. The Lighting is also very well managed. Hope to post some of my own photos soon.

I share thoughts of your note. It is a great luck and pleasure to watch live view :). Simply amazing expressive scene and perfect composition. Bright brown-red strip at FG, natural cloudy sky and green vegetation as a BG create a fine composition. Well done and warm regards.

I must say it seems like elephants enjoy the same things that my grandkids do....mud baths, socializing, water games, and football:)
A wonderful capture and of the highest quality which seems to be a trade mark from you.
I am always amazed as viewing such large creatures walking freely in the wild, which I'm sure you folks are very use to seeing on a regular basis. The largest animal we see here in Ohio is our White-tailed Deer, which may go around 250 pounds. TFS.

Thank you for tis sharing from a picture of two african elephants.
Good point of view, showing the elephant playing together like childrens (it's what we perceive; I'm not very sure that for the elephants, it's only a game.
Good composition of the picture with a frame well filled. Sharpness and depth of field properly adapted to the subject.
For your information, even if I agree with the preservation of the elephants, we must also understand that more or less often elephants are a nuisance for the cultivation and the peace in african villages. I personnally have visited areas who are completely devasted by elephants. So, what to do?
Anyway, thank you for the sharing.

Saw this one yesterday, and put it in my fav, but didn't have time to write. I love the way they interact with each other so intimate like two best friends. Thanks for all the wonderful note about their activities. and it is nice to witness one of these moments. I have seen some elepants, but nothing like this. The POV here show just how big they are.
Fantastic shot with good quality as always.
