The gentle giant!! Well captured!
Such great creatures of this wonderful world. Thanks for sharing your talented shots.
Beautiful click...is it clicked at Pune??
No Hina, I encountered this while trekking at Bannerghatta National Park, Bangalore.
wow, So beautiful
I love him. I think elephants are so beautiful & your photography always shows all creatures, great snd small, at their best.
That's an excellent shot of the elephant. It is such a majestic creature.
Where did you spot him? I love elephants…they become so rare.
Spotted while trekking at the Bannerghatta National Park, Bangalore. The sightings in the wild are rare, but they are quite abundant.
Fantastic elephant photo. Is it at a zoo or in the wild?
It was at a wildlife sanctuary.
just beautiful, so nice to have these out in the wild.
I love all their wrinkles! They just have so much character.
Looks so royal!
Fantastic shot captured.
Love the pic. I've always loved elephants and this is such a beautifully composed shot!--Purrs and woofs from Life with Dogs and Cats.
the elephant looks marvelous... beautiful shot
I like the movement you captured in the image. What a wonderful image!JM IllinoisU.S.A.
Love your picture! I have a great love for elephants, they are so majestic in my eyes. I"m pinning your picture, it's simply amazing! :)
Wonderful, but personally I hope you zoomed in, and weren't too close. :)
wow, what a beautiful elephant!
Trekking at Bannerghatta and sighting a elephant in wild Great Shiju, were you on your own?
Yes, I was alone. It was a shoot and scoot job. :)
Wonderful lighting, he does look as if he has just wandered out of the bushes after a refreshing nap! Must have been quick thinking to take the picture and then get out of the way. I must say seeing elephants first thing would be something else, my usual morning creature is a moose, not quite so cute.
How cool to be that close - did you have a huge zoom, or did you snap and run, or neither because he is a gentle giant?!Wren
I was about 100 meters away. I fled from there after shooting. Lone elephants can often turn violent.
Incredible shot Shiju!! I love its eye staring at you. Elephants are such amazing creatures - how privileged you are to see one live!
Beautiful pic ! It's been a long time since I have seen one. Thanks for sharing :)
What a beautiful creature in that golden light. Great shot, taken in a park?
Yes, taken in a national park.
What a great shot. Elephants are such curious looking creatures. Loving the rich, warm tones of your shot.
You won't see any elephants in my neighborhood.
Wonderful catch!! And thanks for the illuminating answers -- It is sad to think how the poachers around the world are decimating the elephant populations.
