Hi T.R., Very nice blog. I can empathize with wanting to be Julie Zickefoose when we grow up. E.O. Wilson is fantastic, I had the fortune to meet him in 1998. An incredible speaker and he is excellent one-on-one as well. I'm going to add my feed to your reader.
Thanks for the comment on The Ohio Nature Blog!
Whoaw, now that's heavy! Great choice for this week T.R. Thanks for dropping by mine.
You've got a great blog, lots of interesting stuff! Happy hunting and have a great weekend.

That elephant looks VERY heavy!
I looked around and found lot of lovely photos!
Thanks for visiting my site!
Oh yes, absolutely no argument - that's heavy! Beautiful photo.
Beautiful!! And exactly what you think of when you hear the word, "heavy." ;o)
I saw a short b/w clip years ago that showed herds of hundreds of elephants stampeding across the savanna. It depressed me to no end to see the devastation we've done to such a magnificent species...and still does.
Wow what a beautiful photo, indeed heavy, thanks for sharing...
Mine is up too:
Every Beat Of My Heart
You took such a lovely natural photo of this elephant. It is gratifying to see it wild. My Photo Hunt — Heavy is here. Thank you.
Elephants surely fit the bill of heavy. I was watching a program about them the other night on TV and they are great.
Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.
I dun even want to imagine what would happen if I got stamp by an elephant! :P
Have a good weekend!
12,000 pounds. That's heavy. One large animal. Awesome.
Hi T.R. You certainly have a great and interesting blog here and your photos are 1st class stuff.
Thanks for visiting my lil ol blog and your kind comments.
Have a happy Sunday.
Great photo, I love elephants!
see, now I'm glad I didn't post elephant photos too :)
It's amazing to think that some of the world's largest animals are all endangered... thanks to human greed. Whales, Elephants, Polar Bears... all facing extinction from hunting and habitat destruction.
Of course I know I'm preaching to the choir here...
Hi TR thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comments.
Elephants are fascinating animals. The Addo Elephant National Park is about 70 kms from our home and we often jump into the car at a whim, to see the elephants.
I have been looking at and enjoying your blog but will need to come back for several visits to take it all in.
HEAVY, HEAVY!! Good Photo's all over your site! My first visit!!
very lovable, wonderful creatures too :)
did you know it takes about two days for the bull's sperm to reach the female elephant's egg? :D that means each elephant born are even greater miracles than us humans, no?
very beautiful capture, with excellent light
Thanks for your welcome on my first week 'hunting. We have a pic taken a few years ago at the ceremonial ground-breaking of the NC Zoo's pachyderm habitat expansion. Czar, their bull, had a pile of dirt and two shovels to play with in front of the viewing area. Bet you can guess at the fate of those shovels...*wink*
How I love elephants. Despite their weight and size there is such grace to them. Lovely, lovely shot!
my favorite animal... they are beautiful. xoxo nita
