14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Dry Land

Something's wrong with this picture, I shouldn't have been able to take it in the first place as the Elephant should have been hidden in between luscious green bushy trees. South Africa's current drought is the worst the country has faced in 30 years. In some parts of the park there's not one green leaf left on the trees so Elephants and other browsers have to walk for miles a day to find food.
