Sort of like the joke about where an elephant sleeps...in this case where does a herd of eles walk?...anywhere they want to! The photo is a bit of an illusion as they were not really that close or threatening but were on a straight line path towards us...for awhile...before veering off.....no underwear was soiled in the taking of this photo!

Very nice Eric. It looks like the water was over the head of the smaller members. So what do they do when the water is this deep and they have a baby with them?

Wonderful shot Eric. I know how hard it is to get a bunch of Ele's well framed and facing you, and this is great.

Looks like it's low tide

Excellent shot Eric, it really gives the impression of size and inertia

What a powerful and highly enjoyable image, Eric.
The compression of a long lens works perfectly here- compressed, but still believable.
I suspect there may have been a big female leading the herd- but just out of our sight.
You had a charter driver/vehicle? My tour van driver turned off the engine when we were close to every species... except elephants. Did your driver follow the same protocol?

Thanks for viewing and commenting everyone. I have found photographing elephants particularly challenging. Eye contact is practically non existent and head on images sometimes are accompanied by high speed chases as these pachyderms try to flatten Land Rovers an its occupants. Seriously, the likelihood of a dangerous encounter is quite small.
And no Charlie...our engine was off...camera shake is much more troublesome then some aggressive teenager or protective mother...we hope and pray for a well functioning starter or a bluff rather than a true charge.
