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.

Dragonfly

A dragonfly perching on our washing line. I think this species is known as the common tigertail, obviously because of the yellow and black markings on its rear part. It is part of the family of clubtail dragonflies.
