balancing elephant || balancierender Elefant

Newer Older

One of my most viewed photos - a young balancing elephant that tries to get some food from out of the hand of a child. Because of some negative critics I read...there was a keeper present behind the elephant at all times. This kind of closeness between the animals and the public is normal in this zoo.

Deutsche Beschreibung
Eines meiner meist angeschauten Fotos - ein junger balancierender Elefant der versucht etwas Futter aus der Hand eines Kindes zu bekommen. Aufgrund einiger Kritik welche ich gelesen habe...zu jeder Zeit war ein Wärter anwesend. Diese Art Nähe zwischen den Tieren und der Öffentlichkeit ist normal in diesem Zoo.

    Oh My Lord! I hope the elephant doesn't lose his balance and fall flat on his face.

    Thanks for ending the zoo debate toward the top of this page. I like to think of Flickr as a place of peace and fellowship instead of debating the issues. There's other places for that, but anyway.....awesome photo. I prefer photos of animals in their natural habitat, but this is one nice zoo shot. Funny, too.
