The Elephants’ choice

20130104 - CS2_6634 - E  - SIG

One should never push Elephants and move in too close to them.

But sometimes they choose to come close themselves. This female Elephant and the two calves where browsing on trees right next to our Land Rover before moving on to follow the herd.

My guests loved this close encounter!

PS: For the photographers among you: To get the effect with both “the Elephants” and “me in the mirror” in focus I overlaid two images with different focus (post-processing).

  1. Wonderful! I have a question about the female elephant. How larger do her tusks grow?

    Thanks, Kathy
