    Hey guys, after the response of my first wild in africa post--> http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=70728

    I thought I'll show you these. Only elephants this time- later on in the week I'll show you some lions or what ever you would like to see. As I said I took ALOT of photos!

    As always any comments welcome and appreciated.

    Wonderful series! The first one is a beaut...such wonderful details in the texture of the mother's skin. The second shot gives one such a good sense of how large the elephant is. The 'panorama' of #3 looks like a screenshot from a movie. They're all awesome

    Absolutely amazing. You should really consider professional wildlife photography as a career, maybe for a magazine or something [if you already haven't.] Number 2 is brilliant, by the way.

    Wow. All of these are as impressive as Sir Ray's eagle photos are! Make my jaw drop right onto my desk here *ploonk* - mostly so the first.
