          Hi Bobby, I use a 400 mm lens and this beautiful bull was drinking at a waterhole very close to the road. The Addo elephants are generally used to cars therefore most of the time they aren’t aggresive. The only time I stay far away from a male elephant in Addo is when it is in musth then they become very unpredictable and very aggressive

        Interesting shadows Graham and the green focal point sets the image off. At a first (very quick glance) I thought it was a crude wooden faucet valve.

          Cheers Bobbie. The flowers have just sprung and they only hang around for a few weeks. I intended getting some wider shots of the whole bush but found more interest in the light and shadow up close.

        Beautiful lighting and I also like how you capture the texture of the flower! Jasmine is one of my favorite flowers, along with tuberose – they both smell heavenly.

          Graham Hart
          Participant

          Thanks Jasenka, probably my favourite flower of all for smell. I planted three seedlings a few years ago outside our bedroom window thinking we would wake up to the wonderful scent of Jasmine every morning. Sadly the variety I unwittingly chose only flowers for a very short time in early spring and then they wither and die off. They’re so established now I can’t bring myself to rip them out and replace them.

          • #422076

            Oh that’s really sad since planting a jasmine bush close to the bedroom window sounds like a perfect idea. The scent of jasmine is one of the main factors that got me into perfume making. I have a few jasmine absolutes at home right now and they really smell like heaven. What a bliss.

        Have never seen a jasmine plant. Like the simplicity of this image, Graham. Hoping you are recovered at last.

          Wow I thought Jasmine was ubiquitous throughout the world. Worth tracking one down in a nursery if possible. The natural scent of the flowers is just wonderful.

        The composition, contrast and shadows work well together giving a lot of depth to the image. Add me to the list of those who have heard of Jasmine but I’ve never seen one in real life.

          Thanks for the comment Graham. Pollinators are VERY important to the worlds ecosystem. Many species could use our help. And it doesn’t take much. For anyone who doesn’t have the space to put in a garden simply planting a variety of nectar producing flowers in pots can make a difference. Try to plant ones that are native to your area.

          Carol and I were surprised at the number and varieties of insects that showed up to our “butterfly” garden we planted last spring.

            You probably should be wary, our Barn cats love a good lizard dinner, I often find tails from the spotted lizards we have around here left on the floor, its the only part they don’t eat.

        Wonderful close up detail Charmaine. So interesting to see the minutiae of his face, the battle scars, the lips, the teeth and hair. It would be a completely different feeling to see him up close in real life though.

        I was watching an episode of a British TV show called QI last night and they said that the only big cat which never changes it’s spots is the lion. Apparently the spots around its mouth where the whiskers grow are unique to every animal…much like fingerprints. Fascinating!

        That tilted lower lip gives him an almost laconic expression…”Ahh, excuse me?”

      autumn colours …
      the reds look unnatural, but they really are that colour!

        The colors are amazing Sandy. It’s always hard fro me to believe that there are such brilliant colors in nature. The bird seems to be a cooperative model too.

          The short answer Graham, no.Β  The camera/lens gets confused around 10 inches, and she gets in that range as quickly as possible.Β  I swear she understands the limitations of the auto-focus
