Elephants of Samburu

By Costy  
A specialist viewpoint of this captivating female elephant. She wasn't the matriarch but was a decent size and in the prime of life. She was seen as part of a herd of 17 elephants in Kenya's Buffalo Springs NP (Samburu Region).

Watch out for the BBC series starting soon set in the same region, focusing on the range of emotions that an elephant can both feel and portray. Also accompanied by a feature article in November's BBC Wildlife Magazine.

I hope you like this one...

Interesting composition here Ryan, I like the contrast between the sharpness and the dof. The textures and detail on the elephants` skin has ben very well caught. Interesting description as well.

Great capture with enough DOF to give perspective on the composition of the elephant.

Nice to see an imaginative and creative composition, much more interesting than it would have been with the elephant centred. Nice one!
