Thought it was time to upload a funny pic!
This photo was again taken at the Toronto Zoo.
I just coundn't resist this shot! But the thing that I liked the most about this photo was all the dust that this elephant was sturring up. (and the fact that he didn't care how many people were watching him!)

Weldone Pamela. It's a very nice shot. I don't like the green in the left upper corner, But the composition from the elephant is perfect.

They are indeed animals without any shame :-) Once witnessed an elephant in the Barcelona Zoo -standing with his bottom faced towards the audience- sucking up sand with his trunk and literally slapping himself at the back while releasing the sand and thus covering his own back as well the audience with a layer of the sucked up sand...
Another elephant standing next to the sand sucker started to repeat this procedure... Though instead of sand this naughty fellow covered the audience with his own fresh laid dung :-)
What about a crop just above the eyes, it might bring out the elephant's facial expression?

Oh yes - when nature calls - and when an Elephant got a go hes got a go. Good shot.

I bet nobody could hold me if he come my way... :-)))
I like the angle very much.

Elephantine expression. We could actually see its "pushing" expression, especially with its stance like that. Also the dust stirring out back pretty much "point" the way. Love the framing too, like you were sniping behind a bush or something.
