One thing I definitely learned today is, taking picture while sitting on elephant’s back is not an easy task. The movement of elephant, particularly on uneven surface, making it difficult to get a nice clear picture.
So I saw this beautiful blue colored bird flying in front of us. With my 24-105mm, I tried to capture the beautiful blue feathers. Unfortunately, as mentioned before, all pictures came blurry. Then, just before we went too far, and / or he flew away, I snapped this silhouette of him between the leaves and branches against blue sky.

When they are not used to being together in such a close proximity, some horses are just too unhappy that the others are invading their space. This morning was such a case, when my older son was riding with a friend.
Being a beginner, I am quite pleased that he was not panic, and most importantly, he stayed on the horse’s back and continued.
