Baby Elephant Peeing

Baby Elephant Peeing
I was fortunate to witness this royal show when I visited Nandankanan Zoological Park (at Bhubaneswar, Odisha) in 2008. I had been clicking my entire trip with the 'still' feature of sony handycam I had back then. But the security at the park entrance had problem with my camcorder, i.e. they weren't ready to believe I didn't have a cassette even inside that to record video which made it at par to any still digital camera. I too was not willing at all to pay for the exorbitant video camera ticket as I wasn't shooting any clip. So, I settled with my 2 mega-pixel phone camera and this is the result in front of you- the baby elephant peeing! Since 2008 I've shared it in different social networks and was at times asked, "How long did you have to wait to see him pee?" Well, it was a luck by chance. Later when I read in some journal that an adult elephant can pee up to 10 liters and that too in 20-25 seconds, I thanked my luck that it was only a calf. Yes you're thinking it right, otherwise I needed a raincoat to click this photo. Too much of text for a photo... I'll better be back with more elephant photos, see you.
