2017-10-09: Monochrome Monday

This big bull elephant was the last animal I saw before heading home from my last safari adventure.  We came across him on our way back to camp for a quick breakfast before our flight out.  He was moving swiftly along the road, and in musth as well, so we stayed well out of his way.  He stopped briefly to check us out from afar, grabbed a small trunkful of sand from the road and let it fly before carrying on his way.  The way the light was falling, the sand almost makes it look like he is surrounded by confetti.
