Taken on the first day of our trip to Botswana with Roy. I took so many pictures and havent worked through them and when it came to start looking through them the first day was my obvious choice to start at and seeing these Ellies was spectacular for me as well.
Never expected it to do this well but glad the people enjoyed it as much.

Lovely shot Rian and it is nice to the whole family from the young to old in one shot. Didnt know your shot was doing this well - but then again you will say I never asked :-)
Congrats on the HM! I see good scores coming from you in the next few months!

Beautiful tones and detail - I love the dust they are kicking up. They are really on the move. Top two for me. Voted earlier.

Excellent capture of the herd on the move. I love the curtain of dust they have thrown up between themselves and the background.

Love the dust and sepia PP. Great exp, comp and framing. Only in Africa.
They are beginning to become a major eco problem though due overpopulation for the available land and their destruction of the habitat.
