    Here are 4 "still" pics of a charge I took in Zim last year. He finished at about 10 yds. The P.H. just waved his hand and said "you want to play, little man? Go away, go away" the elephant shook his head, kicked some dirt and walked away. I spent the next few minutes cleaning out my pants, choking back down my lunch and letting the adrenaline subside. I wish I had my camera on video but just got pics. 934.JPG 935.JPG 934.JPG 935.JPG 936.JPG 937.JPG
