African Elephant Loxodonta africana
The dust caused by the elephants’ rapid approach to the water’s edge, combined with the fading light of the encroaching dusk on an autumn afternoon, lends a misty and mystical atmosphere to this image. The elephants had come for a sundowner late on a May afternoon. This waterside view of them enjoying a thirst-quenching drink is one of my favourites!
This image was captured on the Chobe River, near Kasane, northern Botswana, Southern Africa.
