Thanks Roka, he was so peaceful and calm, only interested in getting his stomach full!! I can watch the old giants for hours on end when they play around and eat!

Fantastic moment. Great capture. Your words are a joy to read. It is good to be able to catch this glimpse through your eyes!!

Thanks Jean. Animals are so different to people, they are seldom nasty, jealous, self centered or worried. In Botswana we at times could get with 10 meters of wild bulls and listen to their tummies making noises!!! That is one thing a camera, or me with one, can never capture, the sound (and silence) of mother nature and her great children, be that fauna, flora or just wide open space!
