During my visit to K Gudi Wilderness camp last weekend, our first sighting was this tusker at a pond. I composed this image when the tusker's mouth was just above the kingfisher. The title is 'Snacks' because I feel the elephant was trying to eat the kingfisher as a snack.

Great moment and the placement of kingfisher just below its mouth is perfect. How about a close-up portrait crop?

Vihaan, Kingfisher seems to trust the elephant a lot! Do we have that trust?!

This is a good one!
I think as the others, you could go closer. I am not sure how much though. But first also correct the image horizontally.

Thank you Ganesh uncle, Sarthak aNNa, Aniket aNNa and Anders uncle.

@Sarthak aNNa
I will do a portrait crop and see how it looks.

@Ganesh uncle,
As there are no conflicts in nature other than territory and dominance the kingfisher would trust the elephant. But there are lot of cnflicts between humans and nature, that is why we would not trust wild animals and even wild animals would not trust us.

@Anders uncle,
I will straighten it horizontally.
