Sunset with an African Elephant

The Chobe river in Botswana is alive with wildlife year round. One if the most majestic is the African elephant, numbered in the thousands. Incredible to see and very special to photograph. The sun had almost set as this magnificent bull crossed a small island in the middle of the river to feed.
