    Well, there goes that idea. It sounds like it was an exciting safari. Watching animals from the safety of a car is something that hadn't ocured to me. :oops:

    You see how the glands near the elephant's eye show wet trails? That is a sign that the elephant is masting and its behaviour can be unpredictable. It is not unusual for a masting elephant to charge. Also this wasn't the only elephant about - there was a herd nearby.

    Craig? you ok buddy?


    I think what you were trying to ask was "was there any available time to get any other shots off?"

    or "Do you have any other shots from the safari that are action packed like the first one?"

    maybe that will help clear the confusion.

    I'd kill to see an elephant herd. (That may be a little dramatic), but YEAH what MD said.

    I also may be far from OK.

    Here you go, Craig... this is part of a herd crossing a road. Notice how the baby struggled to get up the banking... in the end it had to have a nudge from the trunk of one of the larger beasts as it passed by, before it could continue on its way.

    Baby struggling...

    Fascinating creatures!!! The animals of the jungle are so far away (in miles) that they never cease to amaze me. I will get back to you on the video (my dial-up is kind of slow). I am sure it will be spectacular.
