While watching for wildlife from a hide near a water hole, the quiet was shattered when a herd of elephants suddenly appeared out of nowhere. The scene was total chaos, with elephants everywhere, and the sounds they made from this close range were unforgettable. In this photo, one elephant was standing just a few feet away from the hide while another elephant on the opposite side appeared perfectly framed between its legs.
