Great photo Ronnie :clap: :clap: Such an impressive perspective having him so close... it's awesome when you're there first and the ellies make their way around your car.

And almost a self-portrait in the wing mirror as well :wink:

Thanks PJL :thumbs_up:
Showing a part of the car in the picture gives one a perspective of size and distance.
In doing this one can see that I have not zoomed in to make things look bigger and closer.
I do however make sure that I am not taking a self-portrait :wink:

Hi Ronnie. Oh those Addo elephants are so special - you don't have to get your car into reverse and speed away when they approach, but just sit still and don't get into their space. Magic. Will be going over to see my son and family in Australia for 3 months and all I will see is the possum that lives under the house, and some Koalas and Kangaroos in the koala sanctuary. I will visit the forum from time to time to enjoy the beautiful african wildlife. So enjoy Addo in all its wonderful glory! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Hi Delene D
Thank you for following the posts. :thumbs_up:
Yes the Addo ellies are special and to think that they were almost hunted to extinction makes it even more special. :clap:
Wishing you a safe and pleasant journey to OZ and a wonderful time with your family. :D
Pleased to hear that you will be popping in here to visit and catching up on Addo. :dance:

Thanks saraf :thumbs_up:
It was an amazing sighting as I had been watching him feeding and coming closer for the best part of 30 minutes :D

Hi Ronnie :D :D

You are so very lucky to be able to spend so much time at Addo :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Absolutely gorgeous photos of the orange-throated longclaw :clap: :clap: :clap: :cam:

And what an awesome early morning ellie experience 8) 8) 8) 8)

Hi Melph,
Thank you :thumbs_up:
Yes I am very fortunate to be able to visit Addo regularly. Part of the N2 highway that was under construction when you were here has now been opened and it takes me 30 minutes in the morning to travel from home in Port Elizabeth to the southern gate entrance. :dance:

I took this photo of a young ellie crossing the road with only a few minutes of sunshine remaining in the "golden hour"
before the sun dipped below the horizon .
Take note of the long thin shadow cast in the road by his trunk :lol: :lol:

I was watching the rest of the small herd that had already crossed the road feeding on my left when this straggler came along very quietly and I had to hurry to take this pic as he stepped onto the road. :)

Loan Buffalo bull grazing alongside the road early in the morning
One can see that he has been rolling in some white mud after the recent rains.
