The Old Man

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Cameron MacPhail

This shot was taken as a large bull elephant approached our jeep one morning, flapping his ears for a moment in surprise before enjoying the vegetation for a bit. At one point he turned to us and stared, as if in deep thought, and I snapped this portrait of one of earth's most amazing creatures. Shot with a Canon 5D at f/7.1, 1/320s.

Location: Okavongo Delta, Botswana, Africa
