Marty’s photo of the day #2616: It’s “Animals A thru Z Month.” Each day in August, I will post an animal I’ve photographed—somewhere in the world—in alphabetical order.
E is for Elephant. Did you know that elephants can’t climb? I was in Zimbabwe, standing atop a high riverbank, when a herd of elephants passed below me on the dry riverbed. While using a hand-held camera to photograph the herd, I accidentally knocked over my tripod. The elephant in this photo charged me, but couldn’t climb up the riverbank to reach me—making for a very dramatic photograph.
