Hello everyone!

As I have mentioned previously, I went on a trip to Zambia!
It was the best trip ever. We went to the South Luangwa National park and the lodges we visited were Mfuwe lodge, Kuyenda camp and Billimungwe camp. I have seen all the animals I had never dreamed of seeing, only a few feet away. It was absolutely breathtaking. 
Obviously me and my dad were constantly taking pictures of every moving object, although most of the times it appeared that they were just twigs or leaves. 
I have made a collection of what I think were my best pictures and I'm going to show them to you over a couple of blog posts. 





A large group of elephants had gathered around the watering hole to drink. It was during lunch, so obviously I brought my camera and I was ready for action. In the water, just near the side of the small pond, there was a just the tip of a crocodile's head. We spotted it, but when we saw the elephants moving closer to it, we grabbed our camera's. There was one elephant who stood right next to it and lowered his trunk to drink. 
The crocodile began turning towards the trunk ever so quietly, not making a single wrinkle in the water.
But suddenly, it snapped towards the trunk and held on to it for a brief second, but his grip wasn't good enough so he couldn't hold on. This sudden movement startled the elephants so bad that they ran of without thinking. This shot was made just after the crocodile had let go. 



And they all just took off. In a few seconds they were all gone, just leaving a cloud of dust behind.








Well this was the first of this small series. I'm so glad with these pictures. Just looking at them takes me right back to Zambia.

See you next post!
