Time for a new theme for Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge … this time it’s Group. I won’t lie, when I first saw the theme I was thinking ” I don’t have any group shots!”. You see, my first thought on seeing the word “group” was a photo of a group of people. I have a thing about people photos … I just don’t like taking them. I don’t know why. I just want to photograph landscapes and wildlife 🙂
Anyway, I noticed that Hugh mentions it can be a group of objects or animals. Well, animal shots I have in abundance! So … this is the one I’ve settled on for a group. We spotted these elephants off in dense bush in Greater Kruger N.P in South Africa. Our guide initially drove into the trees and scrub to get us closer but the matriarch took offence at our proximity, so we backtracked to the dirt track to sit and patiently wait for the herd (or group given the theme lol) to cross the road. I’ve seen bigger herds of elephants but something about the warm tone of this shot really appeals to me.
Update: Thank you to Ronovan for selecting to feature this photo for the “group” theme.
