Hello! | by Steve Castle

Hello!

This is the rather large chap we met up at the airstrip early one morning. Our first 'proper' elephant sighting!

 

Oh. By the way, yes, that is the airstrip behind him and yes, I have taken off and landed successfully along there four or five times now!

 

I'm glad I took a second digital body now.. I had the 170mm-500mm on the 40D, which did most of the shooting and the 18-200mm (new for Christmas - optical stabilization too!) on my Dad's old 300D..

 

Boy, did I need to be less than 170mm on a few occasions.. these guys are big!
