You'll have to indulge my whims to try
stuff. Here is an animation of the elephant crossing the road in
Etosha. If I had been thinking ahead, of course, I would have not changed
anything on the camera and just snapped away so that each shot would have had
the horizon in exactly the same place and the elephant would have been the same
size in each picture. But I had fun meeting the challenges of making them
sort of flow anyway.
This elephant walked slowly to the middle
of the road and then turned and gave us a look. He turned a little more
with the next step making it quite clear that we were not to continue yet.
The little shake of the head and the little curl of the trunk were enough to
convince us that we'd be happy to wait. The driver keeps the engine
running around elephants on the move like this--never can tell when you might
have to back up real fast!
