Default Africa - Elephants

Saw these elephants migrating from one place to another at South Luangwa, Zambia in search of food and water.
These were shot mostly in the afternoon.
The dry Mopane forests and grass lands made a lot of difference...





Thanks for comments & suggestions.

Very nice shots, enjoyed viewing. It must be a real treat to view these animals in the wild. Did the two in the last shot just come out of water?

Thanks for sharing.

The sepia-like tone in the first photo is wonderful, the animals mixing so well with the background.
Thanks for sharing.
