Macro Monday

Kruger, South Africa – Loved seeing these elephants on Safari. Our guide said these elephants weigh up to about 7 tons and reaches the height of about 3 meters at the shoulder. They are voracious eaters which in a day they consume about 600 pounds and bark from trees. Elephants can live to a potential age of 70 years. Kruger National Park protects large herds, due to rigorous conservation measures.
