Species: African Elephant | Location: Mana Pools National Park, Zimbabwe

As we stopped to watch the sun set all the pieces came together for this silhouette of an elephant. The setting sun created a beautiful glow on the Great Zambezi river and I was able to get into position to create this image. This is my favorite image from Mana Pools National Park on Nat Hab’s Hidden Jewels of Zimbabwe safari.
