Elephants (Loxondonta africana) take frequent naps, but most often on four legs. They actually sleep for a remarkably short time in the wild, some say two to three hours a day, and only sleep lying down once in every three to four days. We stumbled upon this pachyderm, fast asleep in the prone position.

Hyperfocal Distance is the distance to the nearest items in a scene when the lens is set to infinity.
“What the Photograph reproduces to infinity has occurred only once: the Photograph mechanically repeats what could never be repeated existentially”
