absolutely gorgeous, besides elephants being a favorite animal of mine, i am sure this was breath taking to take, just to be in the elephants presence.

How did you manage to take this photo? Is this a wild elephant? I suppose you took this with a telephoto lens? Or were you in the water with the elephant? The angle of the shot and the composition are amazing! This is truly one of the most striking photos of an elephant I've ever seen.

This is a wild elephant, and it looks more dangerous than it actually was (at least I think so, hehe).
We were in a boat. The focal length was 200 mm. Thanks for your nice comment and your interest!
