p.1 #1 · Time to leave...I've packed my trunk


Not sure why these have been sitting in the vault for 5 years! All were taken with 1DMark2 and many with original 70-200 2.8 is. Over time I have become more fascinated with eles and their social structure. They have a tenderness and family structure that is very special to observe. And any mother that lets their kids play in the mud like these do is tops in my book.
Hope you enjoy.
Eric
By the way, notice in photo 4 the baby elephant has lost the end of its tail....probably from a lion attack or an over aggressive elephant hair bracelet manufacturer . Doesn't seem to be causing any problem but may prevent it from swatting flies.

Love eles. I watch them for hours on my safaris. The young are quite comical with their play and antics. Thanks. Don

Terrific little documentary here Eric, very cool to see. I like the environment we see in these, especially things like the distant tree in 2 and 3. 6 and 7 convey that sense of closeness you've descibed. 10 is just a classic image for me (is that an ant/termite hill?).

Thanks for finally digging thru the vault for these, well done.

Oh my oh my! These are utterly delightful, Eric- individually and collectively.
At first I thought it was the big momma and four of her offspring- with the youngest nearest to her. Then, there's the really large elephant greeting her from the shore. Unlikely that the giant is a male, so I'm guessing she's the REAL BIG MOMMA of the herd.

Excellent shots Eric. These wouldn't have lain in my vault for more than a few minutes

I don't know how you focus on such big subjects, must be confusing !

#5 for me, love the symmetry and maybe shaving off the top some would .........well .........I like it!!

Great sharpness, big and cool Eric
