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?
