This is a pastel of  a herd of elephants crossing the Luangwa River in Zambia.  It was the dry season and the river was evaporating rapidly - and already the hippo were getting very territorial and fighting over the deeper pools that were left.

It was late in the afternoon and we were driving back to camp, when we spotted this cheetah.  He was making his way to deeper cover, and the setting sun was backlighting him a bit.
