    Jane- I did hear about that. Its been a few years since I been over to that zoo. I do miss my Wisconsin. What a fantastic head on shot you got here. I love the right in your face look. You did such a fantastic job of capturing the textures of the skin and the ripples of the trunk. Such a beauty girl.
Have a wonderful day and enjoy.
