      Went so low on this one that my hand supporting the lens got wet. Tightest I have ever held on to my equipment.

      Sorry Allan, have to hijack your shot here. Gary, it ain't a pretty sight to see a baby elephant doing a leopard crawl thru the bushes!!

      Very picturesque image! Nice light, great angle and composition. Wish the leaf covering his leg was out of the way - nevertheless great shot.
