This image was captured in Botswana on the shore of the Chobe river. A small group of elephants were coming and going to the rivers edge to drink and to cool themselves in the water. As I was photographing them, I noticed this smaller group just get up a begin walking away at the same time. I thought the rear view of elephants walking was interesting and titled it “Making an Exit”.
