A Maze of Grass

A herd of elephants makes its way through Botswana’s Okavango Delta. “These animals move through the shallow waters of the delta easily, leaving behind water channels which, seen from the air, form a large mosaic of green mazes,” writes photographer Gaston Piccinetti, who submitted this image to Your Shot.
