Textures of Addo

Most of the animals at Addo were amazing models and allowed me to really take some gorgeous close up photographs. The elephants were my favourite to stare at becuase of all their wrinkles, creases and mud marks.

Elephant Texture

There were a lot of big tortoises at Addo and I got to really ‘study’ them and I found them quite fascinating. Look at how the loose skin on the back leg pulls and folds.

Tortoise Texture

Warthogs are always so funny to watch run. Unfortunately these ones were so comfortable with the vehicle they just carried on eating their grass whilst I snapped away. Their eye hairs are very long.

To see more pictures of my trip to addo visit my Addo flickr set. There are some photographs that would make fantastic desktops. Currently I have a photograph of an elephant on my desktop but next week I will feature this close up photograph of the ostrich. (P.S. I have to mention how cute this little elephant photograph is).

    I used to have a pet tortoise and whenever I saw his back legs, it always reminded me of an elephant’s legs – just miniaturized. Lovely piccies.
