Mock Fighting - Tuskers @ Kabini

The Kabini river bank is a very special place for watching elephants in large numbers. As the forest starts going dry the fresh grass along the banks attracts a large number of herbivores.

The young males in the elephant herd often engage in mock fights (or sparring) in preparation of their days ahead. The real fights are more of a display of strength but in rare instances can turn ugly and inflict injuries.

Tech Specs:

Canon 1D Mark IV + Canon 600mm F4 L IS
Shot at 600mm, 1/1250s, F4 and ISO 400
