We were in the middle of savanna, not near of the water holes, where to find animals are very easy. Then we became surprise when this huge elephant appeared, other cars stopped and it crossed the road and pass by us with a great calm.
Their tusks are small because deficiency of minerals in the soil.
Estávamos no meio da savana, relativamente distantes dos buracos de água, onde os animais são facilmente encontrados. Ficamos surpresos quando este enorme elefante saiu da savana e cruzou a estrada, passando calmamente por nós e pelos outros carros que haviam parado para apreciar sua grandeza.
Suas presas são pequenas devido a falta de minerais no solo.

Hi Jorge, I was wondering why his tusks are so small and now I know after read your note.....thank for the information. Great snap shot of the animal in its habitat. Well composed with all the trees around him taken with great light and natural colours. Best regards

Surprising close encounter with an elephant, Jorge, luckily it did not charge, probably used to people sightseeing around. Adorable animal well shown.
Fine photo, nicely explained about its tusks.

I think this is a very beautiful portrait of this fascinating elephant – you have captured it excellently in its natural element. The light and the moody colors make the image very attractive. My compliments!

Esta captura del elefante, bien encadrada por la vegetacion esta muy lograda, por los colores del suelo se nota la ausencia del agua, lastima sus colmillos
Pasaremos a los octavos en la Copa?

Not a common encounter as African elephants live nowadays in remoted areas where there are protected, this is an imposant specimen Jorge, I like the nature around it
