Very nice action photo of this Elephant mother with young. Excellent sharpness and beautiful natural colours. Good DOF. The tree in the background is the victim of elephants, maybe.

A wonderfully sharp image of a beautiful event of togetherness between parent and child. I believe the Etosha elephants have particularly small tusks due to a shortage of phosphate in the soil but they have a very large physique otherwise. I am a little perplexed here as I always was under the impression that the elephant move north from Etosha to Ovamboland and Angola during the rainy season. And I remember being told by the Chief Game Ranger at Namutoni that they did not know what the reason for the migration was but that one possibility was that the ground became too slippery for them during the rainy season and that they then moved on to the more sandy terrain to the north. I am not sure that they could have figured that out. One year in November (Etosha was still closed to visitors during the rainy season those years but we had bona fide friends in the park and got invites) I took a photo of a very large bull at a water hole near Namutoni and was told that he was one of the very last to depart for the north. However, that is just by the way.
Congratulations again on this excellent image and on your Etosha gallery. Best wishes and I am looking forward to the rest.

Great African stamps with these elephants enjoying the water, with the arid savannah pale background. Since part of my private collection of elephants. Thanks for sharing your work, Carl.
