Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author Marty Essen

Elephant charge!

Marty’s photo of the day #3694: Yesterday I posted a different elephant photo and someone (a bit tongue-in-cheek) wondered if the elephant was charging me. That elephant wasn’t charging, but this one is very much doing so. I was photographing this elephant while standing on the bank of a deep, dry riverbed. I wasn’t using my tripod at the time and accidently knocked it over. The elephant heard the noise and charged!

Fortunately, elephants can’t climb. So while the charge made for a dramatic photo, I was perfectly safe on the riverbank.
