The Story behind the Shot:

During my safari in the Serengeti in February 2014, I spotted a large herd of approximately 80 elephants walking through the green fields towards my car. It was a dream of mine to capture a bull up close, and I knew patience would be the name of the game. I waited quietly with the car turned off for hours, hoping they would continue in our direction. 

One of the larger bulls marched head-on towards us, and then waited while the rest of his herd kept a greater distance. It was as if he were their protector, and when he sensed we weren't a threat, he allowed them to march peacefully by us. 

To get this shot, I laid on the floor of the car, looking up towards him. I knew when his herd walked by, he'd turn from us and move in their direction again, and I hoped to catch him in profile with the elephants in the background between his legs.
