[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a gloomy day as I drove up through Kruger
Park on my way to Zimbabwe. Not 5 m from the roadside,
this young bull spotted me and flared one of his "flaps"..not in menace, but more awareness and a sign that I should move on...pronto. I managed to roll down the side window and quickly take this shot. A few seconds later, he flared both flaps and I floored the accelerator. One doesn't fool around with the "king of beasts." No, not the lion, the elephant.
