This is a continuation of my previous post of the elephant bull trying to cross the Chobe River.
The boat you see in the background was just one of many that were closing in on him.
As you can see he eventually got extremely frustrated flapping his ears and lifting the trunk - giving out the first warning!

I was in Chobe about a 1/2 year ago and similar scenes. You've really captured his frustration well. You've also captured his audience nicely.
I was really caught as to whether supporting the river boat industry was a good thing or a bad thing. On one hand I knew we were way too close to the animals, on the other I knew that without money coming in from tourism, the animals wouldn't be allowed to stay there. Your photo has really framed the problem well.

This is also interesting shoot but a little feeling scare as the distance with elephant is too close. B&W is effective indeed.
Anyway best regards and many thanks
