It's not always easy to get an open eye shot of an elephant, their large protective eyelashes often shade the eye.This male had sensed my presence as I was crouched down low in a bush hide close to a waterhole. Their rough hide and skin texture always suit a b&w conversion (especially in harsh light) with leaving just the color of the eye.
