It may look as if the elephant was dancing but that was not the case. For an unknown reason he got very angry with us, started flapping his ears and was preparing to charge so we had to slowly move the car backwards as we were pretty close.

This shot is taken handheld at 65mm while the car was moving away. There was no time to adjust the camera settings. One lucky shot which I would have missed if I had not my Sigma 50-500 zoom mounted.
