I got dust all over me and the camera. I cleaned the camera as much as I could there. I always carry an appropriate cloth for that. I did a better job later than night back at the room.

Yes, I did. Most are very similar to this one. I didn't have a lot of time and I had several more animals I wanted to photograph. For the whole trip, I have several hundred photos I'd love to share.

Thank you very much! Dust on the cam and dust on me. As soon as I realized there was a dust in the wind issue I fled to another animal. Later that day I cleaned the cam and me. :rofl:

Mine are all in storage right now because of the remodeling, and when the house is done I'm only going to keep a few in a curio cabinet. This is a little known secret about me, but I'll share with you, I use to work for Circus Vargus, my job was to go to the towns ahead of the circus and purchase the oat hay for the elephants. I loved to just sit and watch them, they are so intelligent. You know that little sway they do when they are standing, it's from boredom, so I use to freeze water bottles and give it to them, they could undo the caps and they would play with the caps for such a long time, they would rub them on their heads and legs, step on them, just little things. Then it got to where I would get so sad for them, so after the circus left California I didn't go back to work for them, I only traveled in California. Sooooo any way, now I like to see them in a more natural setting. Geez, I carried on didn't I! Sorry Ralph, I can get very chatty! Loves ya!
