One feels rather small when a large Elephant focuses his attention on the open safari vehicle one is sitting in, even if it is only for a few seconds.

This is one of the oldest and largest bulls on Thanda Safari. We estimate his weight over 6 tons (=3 Land Rovers 😊).

PS: Today’s morning post bird was a White-backed Vulture

  1. Love your pictures.
    They took the elephants out of the Nashville Zoo
    I guess we’ll have to come to you.

  2. Well, I have 2 guesses:
    1. The ugliest bird I have ever seen or
    2. A turkey vulture???

    Chris I never cease to be amazed at your photographic art!!! You are an amazing talent. There is a standing invitation to dinner with Pat and I in Franklin if you are ever in the Nashville area.
