Elephants, Namibia

Photograph by Aaron Price

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Photos

This shot was taken just before the rainy season in Etosha National Park, Namibia, during an internship for the World Wildlife Fund-Namibia Chapter. The elephants were in the process of chasing away all the wildlife in the area from the watering hole. Then the dominant male proceeded to lead the charge on the parked vehicles as you're observing now. I like this picture because there is so much motion and you feel alive when being chased down by elephants.
