Hi Pamela: Nice capture of this gorgeous creature ... they are such an intelligent animal. The tight crop on this is terrific and I too like the touch of greenery at the corner of her mouth. Love the eye.
@pamelabole replied: Thank you Jenny for your kind comments! Yes, when I saw the Asian elephants at the zoo, and in your Thailand shots, that was the first thing that stood out to me! Big or small ears, they are definitely amazing animals....I could have sat and watched them all day!

African Elephant

Tarangire National Park

Tanzania, Africa

It was amazing to watch the elephants....socialize, play, travel and eat!

Their trunks are used for everything...from a gentle caress for their babies, to a weapon, to get a drink, to snapping off tree limbs (like they are toothpicks) in order to get to the green leaves. We watched this elephant, and her family, feed on a grove of trees. Lots of splintering sounds!

Thanks for looking!
