A young elephant (Loxodonta africana) bull haughtily exerts his perceived right over the waterhole by charging a hapless zebra (Equus quagga). Despite being thirsty, the zebra didn’t hesitate to argue the point!

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at
