Reflecting on Family - Save Them
Reflecting on Family – Save Them
While at the Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana, I had the pleasure of utilizing an underground photographic hide. An entire hide has been sunk into the ground right next to a waterhole that is in prime elephant habitat. Inside, seating is arranged so that viewers’ heads are at ground level.
The waterhole attracts all manner of animals besides elephants including kudu, impala, and baboons. However, the natural attraction is the elephants. I was lucky enough to visit the hide three times while I was there.
I took thousands of photos while in the hide. It was so fascinating watching the interaction between the families of elephants. I especially loved viewing the baby elephants; they were so much fun! This composition and artwork were created from a photo I took while attending those very exciting photography sessions.
This artwork is one of four of my “Save Them” series.
