Kenya's Tsavo East National park red elephant

A bull red elephant from Kenya's Tsavo East National park enjoying a healthy snack before sunset. The elephants here get their color from the soil in the park, which serves as natural protection from the sun. This image is part of a long term photo project that involves creating awareness about ivory poaching in Kenya's Tsavo and Amboseli ecosystems.
