Limited edition fine art print of 6 –  Elephants are the largest land animal remaining on earth. They hold a special place in my heart. Here a lone bull snacks in the mid-morning sun. Males will spend most of their adult lives wandering alone until it is time to mate. He wandered just perfectly into the frame with my 600mm lens attached. I was hoping to capture his whole body in the frame to show his size. This is one of the largest elephants in East Africa. I was satisfied with how the shot was coming together, and then he flapped his ears, adding to his already magnificent profile. After seeing these beautiful animial in the wild you cant help but want to protect them. Photo © copyright by Derek Nielsen
