The picture of the carcass of an elephant, which was killed after drinking from a poisoned water hole in Zimbabwe's Hwange national park, broke my heart.

Thanks fo r saring thes great photos. Loved the elephant and rhino face-off - and the mist on the moors photo, it will be what I imagine when reading some of my gothic historicals - they always have scenes of misty, foggy moors. The dead elephant was sad - it could be a poster pic against the poison poachers.

Love the animals. Many serious curses on the person or people that poisoned the watering hole and all those elephants died. What is wrong with people. We need less humans in this world and more animals.

The guineafowl looks like it has a pumpkin stem on it's head, lol.

Very sad about poisoned water in Zimbabwe. Makes me sick with anger.

Thanks Cher :)
