Big Tusker
African Elephant (Loxodonta africana)
Balule Nature Reserve, South Africa.

This is one of the last of the big tusker elephants left on the continent of Africa. It is believed that there may be as few as 30 of these remarkable giants left there, a lot of them isolated in areas very difficult to reach and document. I was incredibly excited to have the opportunity to photograph this big male in the Balule Reserve in South Africa. The genetics of big tuskers are becoming increasingly rare so to spend time with him was an amazing experience. It almost seemed as though you could feel his immense power as he slowly and calmly approached us with the morning mist and bright backlight creating this beautiful glow affect around him as seen in the image.
