Camera Critters - Elephant

We went to the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire today and watched alot of the shows. We went to the one in Manheim, PA, about a two and a half hour drive from Bellefonte. Manheim is near Lancaster. I love the Medieval Times. Alot of Pirates, sword fighting, jousting, etc. I was able to snap off this photo of an elephant up close. He was giving the children rides.

It was hot out and this elephant was blowing air on himself. The trainer watered him down too.

This is showing how they put the children on the elephant for rides.

These are great shots of the elephant. I especially like the close up of his eye. Looks like he's looking right at us! I've been catching up on your other posts. The ones of the soldiers are epsecially touching. It looks like Bellefonte gave them a great send off. I pray they stay safe.
