One of Etosha's world-famous white elephants (they are so white because of the white mud they cover themselves in to keep away all kinds of unwelcome critters). The mix of wet and dry mud camouflages this young guy perfectly in the late afternoon glow. Canon EOS 70D. Sigma 50-500mm lens. Autofocus.

Exif: Camera: Canon Canon EOS 70D; Shutter Speed: 1/640; Aperture: f/6.3; ISO: 400; Orientation: 1; Date: 2019:06:24 16:15:48

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
