"Forest Elephant" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
African Bush Elephant
Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

I always seem to run out of superlatives when talking about experiencing a moment on foot with an elephant in Mana Pools. It's one of the most humbling, awe-inspiring and gratifying things you can experience when on safari. We spent a whole afternoon with this relaxed (totally wild) bull, as he was feeding from the forest canopy along the banks of the Zambezi river. This was taken crouching down on foot, he was closer to me than our "getaway" vehicle was!

It's WildlifeWednesday so please do share your photos of wild critters from all over the globe with us! Use the hashtag #WildlifeWednesday  to post and to view the variety of photos that is shared every week for this theme...

Space is running out on our +Wild Eye  #ManaPools   #PhotoSafari  departures for 2015: http://bit.ly/Mana2015

+Brian Dukes as promised, here's my 3 of a kind.  Not only are there 3 of them, they're bigger than your two rhinos. 

These 3 elephants were actually in the water. When I was living in Switzerland, when the circus would come to town, they would have a big parade that ended with the elephants being lead down to Lake Neuchatel for a dip in the lake. It was quite a spectacle with large crowds turning out to watch the elephants frolic in the lake.

Sunrise on the dry Hoanib Riverbed. Papa G, a 40+ year-old bull gracefully picks leaves off the ana tree above him. And he was just the beginning of our our day-long journey across the Skeleton Coast to the Atlantic Ocean. Story here: http://wp.me/p3zavK-4zH

Still time to get your +Elephant Wednesday shots in, curated by +Matthias Haeussler , +Diego Cattaneo and myself, +Louisa Catharine Forsyth . Looking forward to seeing everyone's posts. 

I am currently working on another project linked to elephants and in memory of Fiela, a baby elephant who I had the pleasure to know for just a few week of her life. We can all make a difference, follow us and be part of it all!

Don't forget to hashtag your photos with: #ElephantWednesday

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
