  1. Even knowing you used a 200mm lens here, that seems a little close! And I have been known to get a little too close...and this makes me nervous! Great shot. Posted 4 years ago

The African bush elephant is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African forest elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African elephant, but recent evidence has seen the forest elephant classified as a distinct species . Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence as insufficient for splitting African elephants into two species.
