Keep very still...

Creeping through scrubby bushland in Mole National Park, in the north of Ghana, we were able to get very close to a group of wild elephants. This one turned and looked at me for some time and I had to decide quickly whether to keep shooting or back away. The decision was made for me after a few seconds when our guide silently signaled to us and we slipped away through the bush to find a safer view.
