Daily Deviation

Given 2009-02-15
Kenya Wildlife 58 by =frtosi Francesco is a amazing travel photographer whose images are like opening up a National Geographic magazine, he has been all over the world, to many places which many of us only dream of going to. Be sure to check out his incredible gallery. What strikes me about this shot is not only is shot in the wild in Africa, but also the pose, and raw sense of emotion as this Elephant checks the photographer out, not knowing if he should seemingly charge or stand his ground...an amazing capture of a moment caught in time ( Featured by kkart )

Great shot of that bull elephant. He looks so small compare to the landscape around him.
