Description: The sun gets unbearable by mid-morning. This is the time when most animals seek shade. I was following this herd of elephants as they make their way to the marsh in Maasai Mara.

Story from behind the lens: They walk over dry ground and grass, thinking only of mud bath and moist grass they will find near the water. This made their walk soothing as they swing their trunks around happily. The remote camera was well hidden and placed in their path. When the elephants came near, they did not see it fortunately and I was happily clicking remotely from a land rover about 50 meters away,
