Love the curve in the fence, Louis...looks like something heavy leaned against it!
Louis: There are a few heavies behind that fence. It may be that they are trying to reach the tall grass, just out of reach.
Great shot, Louis!! Love how she looks like she's composing!
Louis: Heh, heh - the inside of an elephants trunk is snotty, like most other noses. She also knows to touch with an open hand, to keep the animal from getting a hold. Like you feed a horse with a stretched hand, to keep it from biting.
LOL, Louis. Now if only we could hear it!
Louis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYu7c4Vkmp0 - there you are!

Nice to see them wanting contact
Louis: They are halfway tame, so are used to contact.
Trunk Call
Louis: Hah, hah - will you take it, I am busy with our beers, Martin

I was looking at the fence too thinking it is about to give way. Then I realised it was steel not wood!

Lovely empathy between the players.
Louis: Yes, no slight measures when you keep elephants. I think they hope she has some of that tall grass that is out of reach, in her hands.
Love the contact, a really special shot Louis!
Louis: Yes, she loves elephants and interacting with them, was a dream come true.

Cool shot this Louis, love the interaction with the elephant.
Louis: Thank you Tracy, wifey loves elephants.
I have no idea what your commentary meant but I love the picture.
Louis: Oh, I was referring to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYu7c4Vkmp0 known as 'The Baby Elephant Walk' by Henry Mancini
I love elephants. It's a very nice picture. Are these orphan elephants?
Louis: Thank you Diana. Yes, they were orphans and now live in a spacious sanctuary where humans can learn more about them from up close.
Or Nellie the elephant smile

in the picture not the ones who played Apache smile
Fantastic image Louis!

A bit like a vacuum hose I'd imagine Louis.
