It is an elephant. Taken from several hundred feet above in a helicopter.
I love it.

Thanks for some interest after challenge- I knew this would bomb. I really, really love the colors and texture of the water. Thanks again! I'm sure I'll do something weird next year for you guys. lol:)

wow. it looks like a swan, especially from the thumbnail. it's all a matter of perspective, isn't it? You rock for submitting this.

Surreal, odd, intriguing but definitely interesting!

I could look at this all day. Dark, brooding, mysterious yet delicate. Quite incomprehensible but a completely wonderful image.

I don't see "perspective" in this picture. I see a rather abstract view of, I think, a bird on a pond, but I could be wrong.

I like the colors showing in the water, but it's hard to tell what is going on here. I think it's a bird. There is also a lot of grainy noise visible.

i have to say, it's an interesting photo. the colours are nice. however, it's very hard to make out the bird which seems to be the main subject of the photo.

no this is too blurry, can't even tell what I'm looking at. It looks like a swan, but not a very good shot of one.
