One of the few 'Big Tuskers' left, around 35-40 years of age and still going strong, (not quite as big as the main guy who was around 55 years of age and rest his trunk on the right tusk), but great to have the opportunity to encounter these animals. Would have preferred a tad more DoF.

Thanks to those who posted or viewed on the last posting.

A very nice portrait of this mature bull munching on his leaves while he keeps an eye on the humans.

Thank you, but a bit more image content on the LHS I feel Carol, it's just a tad tight, human error on my side!

I disagree, the ele is slightly angled the other way so your proportions are fine for a close up portrait in this instance, IMO.  :)
