African elephant

By ColleenA
This elephant had given himself a mud bath earlier and the mud had dried to a dull red colour. I decided to colour pop the image to highlight the mud colour.

Morning Colleen, super shot and a gorgeous animal it is too. Maybe a little crop on the right would be a good idea but a terrific image.
