Backlit elephants in dust

There are places that just have a little something that makes them special and unique. Chitabe in the Okavango delta is one such place that lives up to its name. The name Chitabe has to do with the fine dust that is kicked up when a zebra takes a dust bath. These creatures are certainly no zebra but the fine dust that is stirred up during the dry season is every photographer's dream. Almost every animal that moves, and with every flutter of a bird's wing, creates this new dimension to one's image. The moments are fleeting, but the rewards are lasting.
