Description: Herd of elephants grazing while the matriarch stands watch

Story from behind the lens: During a safari drive, we came across this herd of elephants grazing. The big female, obviously the matriarch of the group, stood at the point between us and the herd, as if to guard her family. Most of my days I was using my camera with a dedicated 400mm telephoto lens, but this was the perfect opportunity to use my other camera with the 24-70mm lens to capture a wide angle shot.
