Hello Tsilla,
They must be enjoying the clean water and not having to have a mud bath. Wonderful that they can do such game conservation in beautiful Africa. It actually is a miracle that game was not completely eradicated over the centuries. European hunters did the worst damage upon having immigrated to Africa while the indigenous tribes and herds were leading a mutually beneficial existence. Thank you and well done.

Beautiful photograph. Excellent wildlife.....

Hi Tsilla

I like the composition, the focus and depth of field. The overall exposure is good, but unfortunately the elephants are a little dark. Maybe they could be brightened with a little pp work. I see you used pattern metering, maybe spot metering on the elephants would be better. Just a suggestion. Love the waves in front of the elephants.


A beautiful moment of peace, I like to see these elephants with their tusks.
The reflections are very interesting.
Great photo well timed. Welcome back :-)

Hi Tsilla,
a nice sharp image the !/8800 shutter speed is just right to catch the splashes

Bom dia Tsilla,
Good to se you again.
Little more to say about this beautiful and cheerful scene.
I limit myself to applaud.

Hi Tsilla, they certainly look like a pair of kids out for a splash in the puddles...Nice timing with the splash flying up. Fiona

Hi Tsilla,
Great to see your work back again. Great timing with the elephants kicking up a spray in harmony as they stroll along. The reflections have come across with such natural clarity. In the BG a egret wading through the calm waters searching for some fish. It is a beautiful country.
