Our guide took us at entrance of the Chobe NP and we took a small truck to know the edges of the river, anyway we had a trouble with this vehicle and it was necessary to take a larger truck to took us with another group. We were coming back to the entrance when we crossed a big area where big trees had seen destroyed by elephants. It is told there are suggestions to kill part of these elephants inside the park because they are destroying everything there. Anyway this it isn't an easy decision.
Nosso guia nos deixou na entrada do PN do Chobe e tomamos uma camioneta para conhecer as margens do rio, ali o veículo quebrou e tivemos que tomar um caminhão maior, cheio de turistas. No caminho de volta nos deparamos com uma grande área com grandes árvores destruídas pelos elefantes. Há um debate no local sobre se o excesso de elefantes deveria ser combatido com o abate de parte deles, uma decisão nada fácil.

Hi Jorge. A clever and cheeky title and composition. Who is imitating whom? Definitely something different. The African sun has stimulated your creativity. As for culling the elephants they talked the same talk when we were there and since that time thousands of trees must have died. hard to know what to do as elephants are becoming rare in other parts of Africa. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Boa noite Jorge!
Que linda imagem!
Bem visto e muito bem feito!
Nitidez, exposição, cores e, logicamente, composição excelentes!

This is an amusing shot. The angle gives it a fresh and surprising look. It migth have been better if the main focus was the animal. The tree is in shaper focus. Antway a gresst shot!

A nice composition. You spotted the parallel diagonals well. I like the effect you created and the well handled light.

A curious giraffe was astonished to see new arrival's to his territory, nice showing the fabulous animal, Jorge.
Managed with the tree, naked of its leaves, explained it was the work of Elephants.
Fine picture, boa tardes,

Foi uma boa ideia, que resultou muito bem. Gosto da composição e da pose da girafa, a olhar para ti. Engraçado, que tanto o tronco como o pescoço da girafa formam diagonal na mesma direção.
