The North-Western part of Namibia is home to the desert elephants. This photo shows mother and child. The mother elephant reaches out to the long branch to strip it from leaves. One can only assume that little jumbo watches its mother doing it, to learn how to do do this. 

As the light was quite harsh, there was a lot of contrast. Therefore I underexposed the photo slightly, to avoid overexposure. Iin post I boosted the shadows to provide more structure to the darker parts.
