elephant sequence

Occasionally a camera trap records pictures of an animal as it becomes aware of the camera.  It is fascinating to see the eye contact and the behavior that follows.  A buffalo might flee, a sitatunga might investigate, and there is no telling what an elephant may do. I lost my first camera trap to what appeared to be an angry elephant. (lowland forest, part 3. http://dkortephoto.com/wordpress/?p=1147)

A feeding elephant becomes aware of a camera trap and moves closer to investigate.

Maybe elephants can feel curiosity. I would like to think so.
