Nzou is the Shone word for elephant. This one I found beside the road close to Vic falls.

Fantastic action shot of Elephant letting you know that this is his territory, superbly captured and framed. What a great experience and memory.

You were lucky to see this nice giant just by the road. I went all over Hwange National Park without seeing more than fresh dung. You got its head from a perfect angle and seem to have enjoyed a good eye contact. The dense vegetation provides a good background.

I've learnt a new word, TE's great for learning a little bit about other languages. This nzou looks like he's posing specfically for you. What a personality. He's positioned well, to the right of the frame, the depth of field is excellent and the colours deep and very natural. Great shot, TFS and I wish you a good week.
