Description
This old elephant had the most remarkable tusks of any elephant I have ever seen. I positioned my remote camera on the trail in front of her and left it there as she passed. The resulting perspective conveys the majesty of this incredible animal. This was taken about 6 weeks before she died of old age (exacerbated by drought), it is estimated she was more than 60 years old.
