African elephant dust bath – My apologies for the silence recently but I’ve been out in Zambia’s legendary South Luangwa National Park for the last week leading a photographic trip. We had a fantastic week with brilliantly enthusiastic guests and over the course of our time there we were treated to some memorable encounters, not least with these elephants after they emerged from crossing the Luangwa river. We were actually fortunate on this occasion as the overcast light really played into our hands, eliminating harsh shadows and allowing the texture of both the dust and the elephants skin to show through. With images such as this it often feels like there are an infinite number of crops that can be made, so interesting is the contrast in texture and form so I thought that for Instagram I’d go for quite a tight crop that focusses on the most interesting part of the image. Though the dust bath session was only brief I don’t know what I’d prepared to give to be privileged enough to experience such a display over a longer period and in hindsight I perhaps wish that I had been brave enough to keep shooting with my 600mm F4, instead of switching to the more flexible 200-400mm. The dilemma that I had was that the elephants would normally spray the dust over their backs, creating a lovely arc in the dust but for these occasions, when the dust was sprayed on their sides I’d loved to have been able to go in really tight and work on some more abstract compositions. I’ll be looking to share some more of my Zambia images over the next few weeks so please do #followme at @andyparkinsonphoto to keep up-to-date with my images @andyparkinsonphoto @natgeo @thephotosociety #wildlifeplanet #exclusive_wildlife #animalelite #majestic_wildlife #exclusive_animals #wildlifephotography #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #wildlife_perfection #nature_of_our_world #ourplanetdaily #yourshotphotographer #wildworldfriend #nature_brilliance #freeyourthinking #educateandinspire #phototips #ethicsbeforeimages #nature #naturelovers #featuredwildlife #wildgeography #wildlife.hd #wildlife #wildlifefriend #wild #zambia #southluangwanationalpark

I morse stod jag och övervägde att lämna kameran hemma eftersom den är så tung! Men jag ångrade mig och gick in igen och hämtade den. I slutet av promenaden kommer årets först lilla kid med sin mamma. Först blir hon nervös och rör sig snabbt ifrån oss men sen stannar hon mellan träden och tittar lite noggrannare och lugnar ner sig. Därefter går hon på stigen bredvid oss i några minuter, äter och putsar sin lilla bebis. När ytterligare en hundägare kommer så tar hon ungen och försvinner raskt! Vilken otrolig upplevelse och jag fick det på bild 🙏🏻😘 #picturetokeep_nature #fotofanatics_nature_ #enbättredag #naturephotography #naturephoto #naturfotografering #naturfoto #wildlife #wildlife_perfection #wildlife_photography #heart_imprint_vip #ig_eternity #tv_fauna #bpa_nature #marvelouz_animals #allkindsofnature #sweden_photolovers #everything_animals #slätmossensnaturpark #photobymariehaverlid

Sunday mornings g I went out to do sunrise but on the way got so side tracked by wildlife I got there to late but well worth it and what a day after spotting and photographing a group of deer I spotted a lovely group of 5 lapwing chicks then later in the day watched fox cubs playing. #lapwings #lapwing #waderbirds #staffordshiremoorlands #moorlands #chicksofinstagram #lapwingchick #wildlife_supreme #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_brilliance #wildlife_perfection #country_features #nature_shooters #nature #naturephotography #nature_lovers #picoftheday #ig_naturelovers #ig_nature #ig_captures

These Egyptian geese are always up for a morning bath to freshen up for the day ahead. I had such fun photographing these birds trying to get the perfect shot.

A risk worth taking ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Every time a giraffe sees water it has to make a decision whether to bend down and drink or to go thirsty for the day.its a big risk they take ,looks like this one took the risk and got rewarded. 🦒💧

New generation ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
We had been tracking the Giraffe Pride for about an hour, when I spotted a flash of an eye in our spotlights, and out of the darkness came 3 gorgeous cubs. 😍The best part about this photo is that there was NO ZOOM NEEDED! The pride walked past the vehicle and proceeded into the mopani thicket towards the BUFFALO HERD. The buffalo were spooked and bulleted in front of the vehicle during the chase! LIONS-1 🔥BUFFALO-0
