African Elephant, Botswana

An African elephant drinks at dawn in Botswana’s Chobe National Park.

Photo Tip: If you plan to shoot just after sunset, or right before sunrise, scout the location ahead of time to look for elements to silhouette against the sky. The colors can make gorgeous backdrops for all sorts of things.
