    Default Elephant in Bandipur

    Saw this behavior of this elephant grabbing the tree to eat in bandipur. It was quite interesting to watch. The light was quite bad so used a higher ISO 2500, still the the shutter speed was quite low . Photographed in Bandipur.

    Canon 1D Mark IV, Canon 100-400mm L IS USM, ISO 2500, f6.3, 1/80, 100mm, hand held, full frame.

    Comments and critiques welcome..

    This scene happened as if in slow motion. The elephant was slowly walking and reached this place. And then slowly raised its trunk to break a few of these. I wonder how the elephants learn which all barks, fruits, roots, leaves etc are edible. I was thinking that you won't get this scene due to the low light.
    Cheers,

    Nice to watch the elephant's rare feeding behaviour. The pose and composition nicely documented.

    ' The aerial roots of the banyan are much fancied, and regularly broken off at the level of the elephant's reach, as they regrow ' - wrote Krishnan.

    Thanks for sharing.SaktiWild

    Nice image.Like the almost ninety degrees angle of the trunk. Personally as the image is more about the action captured the fact that a part of the elephant is outside the frame does not bother me.Thanks for sharing

    Thanks all for the comments.

    There is a tree on the right side of the frame, slightly visible in the frame, so the rear part of the elephants was not visible. It was also too close for my 100-400 lens so couldn't go for a wider composition. So at 100mm I composed to include only till the tree.

    Agree with Sankarji , I normally like to include the habitat and the full animal if possible.

    A nice record of the animals diet. I have seen this twice once at balle in kabini about 4 years ago and once recently in the night at mudumalai, right next to a resort.

    Nice behavior captured. Like the way in which its eyes are looking up. Thanks for sharing.
