Elephant Charging at Me!

Speaking of elephants and shadows last week, an elephant and I scared each other. We were in Botswana in 2007, on safari. Our driver had stopped his vehicle close to thick brush. The elephant came out on the other side, saw us  and  immediately spread his ears and charged. For a split second I wondered whether I should take a picture or scramble over to the other side of the Toyota Land cruiser.  I took the picture. Thank goodness the elephant stopped. The image was in focus which is kinda amazing, too. (You can see him close-up, too. Just click and double click on the image.)
