Elephant Bull Detail (Loxodonta africana)
This old solitary bull was missing one of its tusks and possessed only a stump for the other. He approached our vehicle and we were not entirely sure if he was going to charge us ,which thankfully he did not and decided to go on his way. I loved the texture in his old, worn skin and the angle of the light as the sun was fading from the sky. I wondered what kind of life this fellow had led up to now, the sights those eyes had seen and the stories he could tell.
