Photos from South Africa.
our guide raised for some years.
We were told that 2.5 times the circumference of an elephants front foot,
is the same distance as ground to shoulder.
So, next time we wonder how tall is that elephant,
all we have to do is measure around its foot.
This sighting occurred around 5 PM on only the second day of our safari.
By then we had seen specimens of all African animals in the wild.
This just topped it off.
I still refer to it as the National Geographic shot.
How much I would have missed had I gone home.
