Five spectacular images out of Africa by our readers
Driving to Etosha Pan in Namibia, I came across this mighty elephant grazing alone. He was aware of my presence but allowed me to stay to capture this image. Elephants spray themselves with mud and sand as protection against the harsh African sun, but this particular beast was a bit more creative. It seemed like he’d covered himself with war paint – perhaps in preparation to go up against a bigger bull later that day?
