Herd of Elephants, Tanzania

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animals

The herds of elephants found in Tarangire National Park in Tanzania are nothing short of amazing. This beautiful group was walking toward me single file during the golden hour before sunset. I absolutely love the light in Africa!
