And now for something completely different...

...well, compared to Wednesday's post anyway. Something like from the sublime to the ridiculous! This was another one of those special moments when one comes around a corner and finds something other than a vehicle on the road!!

I've seen lots of elephant photos - but it's just so special and different when you take them yourself, and when the subjects are so close!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

They disappear regrettably more and more, often for their ivory and nevertheless this magnificent animal is one of older to the world. Beautiful shot
