My First Editor's Choice

Had a great surprise when I woke up this morning to find that one of my pictures was chosen as an Editor's Choice which really made my day.

African Elephant

This picture was actually taken a few minutes before she swam in the water and went up to the keeper and sprayed him that I talked about in my blog called "The Picture That Got Away".

The keeper kept on throwing apples into the water on a hot day trying to attract the elephants and she was the only one that went into the water. When this picture was taken she was actually trying to get the apples to move closer to her by moving the water and then she sprayed her self down.

It was an exciting moment to see.

Update November 17, 2010:

Earlier this year I made a decision that I would not be selling my photos any more but would start removing my photos in November. I would like to thank everyone that has given me wonderful comments on my photos the past several years and to the the buyers that have bought my photos. I now will only be displaying my photos for show in a photography journal that I have created which you can find the link listed under my website.

I've recently started going back to school for a degree in Zoology and trying to keep up with my stock photography and schooling at the same time was not working out for me. My schooling comes first and then photography has and always be just for fun.

Thanks again everyone cause I really have enjoyed the past several years at Dreamstime.
