Ok, actually I decided to go to the zoo since a long time and to take my 500 with me. Turned out to be too long for the elephants and since I was too lazy to change lenses I decided I would to a body parts series :wink:


To build an elephant we need a head:

These are all beautifully shot, Daniel, and thought-provoking, fascinating and educational, too! And your presentation is awesome!

I am going home tonight to build an elephant (using spare parts from my cats). Thank you for the lesson!

Thanks all for the nice comments. I didn't expect that shooting an elephants behind could be such fun. :rolleyes::wink:
And - I was surprised to see that they somehow manage to cover nearly the whole body with mud (see the eye for example)! Only with their trunk.
