Elephant

A majestic elephant bull in profile. Because of the threat of poaching, the number of really old and big male elephants has dwindled in the past decades. It is a joy to see them – and always a little scary too, I must say! The photo was taken in Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa. In this edit, the background is evenly coloured, and the shape of the elephant is stylized.

If you think this would look great on your wall: prints are available here.

Klipspringers

This cute couple is Mr. and Mrs. Klipspringer. Klipspringers – literally it means ‘rock jumper’ – are small antilopes, reaching a maximum shoulder height of 60cm. They enjoy acrobatic jumps on rocky outcrops. Because their habitat is often inaccessible and commercially not interesting, klipspringers are doing relatively well in large parts of Africa.
