We spent this particular morning in February 2010 on a game drive in the Sabi-Sands Game Reserve, and came across a small herd of African Elephant consisting of cows, calves and this young bull.
At one point he was right next to the vehicle, and something irritated him...causing him to shake is head vigorously from side to side. I loved the way this frame captured the flapping ears.
He was very close (focusing distance 3.98m) and so I used an aperture of 2.8 to ensure only the necessary detail was in focus, placing emphasis on the face and eye.

Hope you enjoyed this one.
I spent my morning at work Morkel :(ReplyDelete
This is a beaty of a shot, love the big ears and eye and man that 300mm is sharp.
this was shot with a 70-200mm f2.8 though! :)
Cool, I have one of those and it's a sweet lens. Congrats on the UK press exposure. You must be very stoked.ReplyDelete
Ek mis die Wildtuin as ek hierdie een sien.ReplyDelete
