Broken Tusks

While on an evening game drive in the Okavango Delta, we were lucky enough to see many beautiful elephants. I immediately noticed this beautiful creature's less-than-perfect tusks, and what seemed to be, to me, sad eyes. My thought was to capture the fact that little did he know his broken tusks probably would save his life from poachers.
