Elephant and buffalo at Masuma Dam, Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe
It’s sundowner time at Masuma Dam in Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park, with clusters of animals arriving for a drink before nightfall. As the elephants arrive for their turn, we see a small group of buffalo reluctantly moving off and heading back into the scrub mopani.

The photograph was taken with a Canon EOS 400D (Canon Rebel XTi) plus 70-300mm IS zoom lens. Shutter speed was a relatively slow 1/60 at an aperture of F11, with ISO set to 400. It was around 5.30pm in August (ie winter in the southern hemisphere so early sunset).
