Africa Geographic Photo Competition Weekly Selection

Week 18, gallery 1 I have submitted again 3 pictures taken in Africa and this one has been selected. There are many excellent pictures submitted in this weekly contest, and I always wonder about the criteria of selection. I am very happy that my majestic elephant bull has made it into the weekly selection. I think my picture works mainly as a good ambassador to defend the case of ban on ivory trade and to enforce anti-poaching. This is the link to the voting page. Please make use of it. #AmboseliNP #elephants #Nature #photography #competition
