I spotted a herd of approximately 80 elephants walking through the green fields of the Serengeti. It was a dream of mine to capture a bull up close. I waited quietly for hours till one of the larger bulls marched head-on towards me while the rest kept their distance. It was as if he were their protector, and when he sensed I wasn't a threat, he turned and allowed them to march peacefully by. I laid on the floor of the car hoping to capture his magnificent profile with elephants between his legs.
