"in the Dust" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
African Bush Elephants
Etosha National Park, Namibia

It's Wednesday, friends, and you know what that means - dig up your best wildlife photos and post them to the Wildlife Wednesday photo theme on G+! Simply tag your posts with #WildlifeWednesday  and you're all set - remember to search the hashtag to see the photos posted by others too...

This photo was taken AFTER sunset in almost complete darkness. I pushed the capabilities of my gear to get this photo:
Nikon D3s with a Nikkor 500mm f4 VR lens
f4  |  1/200 SS  |  ISO-20,000!!

Please tag our page, +Elephant Wednesday in your photos not just your posts as it isn't possible to see all in the stream as we used to, we are seeing mainly posts from 2012 as other curators are too despite their being so many recent ones! Many thanks ahead, happy  #ElephantWednesday all! Curators +Matthias Haeussler , +Diego Cattaneo & +Louisa Catharine Forsyth  ヅ

Elephant snack - not my idea of something tasty to eat but this elephant was enjoying demolishing a tree branch. Watching elephants feeding is quite awe-inspiring, especially when you see how quickly they can consume large volumes.

You're welcome +Elephant Wednesday :) My friend was just asked to be a part of the team making the film. So hopeful the publicity will make a difference

For the Love of Elephants is a feature length documentary film in the making that aims to expose the dark side of Kerala's glamorous cultural festivities and rituals that exploit captive elephants for profit, and reveal the abhorrent torture these supremely gentle and intelligent animals suffer... We can all do our bit to make a difference...

Many thanks to Darcey for leaving a link to it on our page...

Inspired by our love of Africa and elephants worldwide...
Introduction
Points to remember when taking part in Elephant Wednesday 

1) The elephants photographed must be in the wild or at least in a Safari Park, no zoo shots.

2) As this theme was born from on a Wednesday and inspired by Wild Life Wednesday, users are encouraged to use both the tags  #wildlifewednesday and #ElephantWednesday
