THE AFRICAN ELEPHANT – Loxodonta Africana
Location captured: “The Kruger National Park”, South Africa.
Elephants have a highly developed social structure and family units are led by a cow elephant or matriarch. The matriarch is, by natural selection, the most experienced member of the group and automatically assumes leadership. The composition of the herd varies and one will find bulls of various ages in attendance. A bull may be distinguished from a cow by its rounded forehead; the cow’s forehead is angular. Both have tusks. Bulls leave the family unit at puberty (10 -12 years) and, in many instances, are driven out by the older cows.

I was born and still live in Africa.
Live a life close to nature, where I get the inspiration to do what I love most…., “Photography”.
Where I live and what I do is my destiny. I am grateful for the privilege
