Brilliant Steve, must have been wonderful to see these animals in their natural habitat and you've captured them perfectly!

Another stunning wildlife image and you can feel the dust
as the elephants trample along.
How well they are grouped for a perfect image.

Quote: Love the POV

Well observed, Ron - for this, I got out of the vehicle to lie on the ground and get the low POV. This worked fine until someone slammed the 4x4 vehicle shut with a bang. The whole troop stopped dead and for about half a minute stared directly at us. Now, mums can be very protective of their little ones and we didn't really want mum turning nasty, she's very big! Howver, they soon saw we were no threat and continued on their way.
