WOW Safariman, some wonderful ele photos. They are such magnificent creatures and so appealing to watch and photograph.

I love the ele bum, and the ele trunk and the old bull with the broken trunk are particularly striking.

Thanks for sharing - i'm sorry if that is the last of your photos, they've been lovely to look at.

Those are really lovely Safariman. Sadly I have never seen an Ele in the wild but I would so love too. Your photo's really are wonderful. I really adore the Trunk one, you almost feel as though you could touch it and I also really like the mud pack one, It is the eye that catches me on that one, the head together is just beautiful, mum and baby is just so cute and I love his little trunk in the air, the Bull with the broken tusk doesnt really look mean, to me he has a kind of gentle look about him and the Lone Bull has quite a serene look about the photo and didn't your mum ever tell you never to mention the size of a ladies B*M Very Happy

A real shame they are your last ones, I too have so enjoyed seeing them all, however, you said they are the last of your recent trip to the Mara.....so maybe you have photo's of your other trips you can share with us bounce

Great photos again Safariman. I hope like LW, and I'm sure the rest of the Guys, as these are the last of your recent trips, that you have more of your previous trips. I really look forward to seeing your photos, of somewhere I've never visited, and proberbly never will.
That really does look a young Mum, with her Baby, it just show how instinctivly protective they are, wonderful shot between her legs of the Baby. Love the trunk one, you can really see the muscle strengh in the shot, and the head to head shot looks like they are passing information to each other. Do'nt worry about the Bum comment, it's LW she feels a bit self conscience sometimes

I have to agree with everything that's already been said.Wonderful shots of, like WS said, a place I may never get to see in person. I really love the close up of the trunk, and the old bull with the broken tusk. I wish he could tell us the story of how he broke it! Thanks so much for sharing these with us, and any more would be greatly appreciated.
