Watching wildlife around at a water-hole can be phantastic

Water-holes come in a lot of different sizes and settings. A lot of them are natural, but they can also be manmade. Some even have floodlights and seating areas, like in a stadium.

Termite mounds are amazing multifunctional structures

Termite mounds are amazing multifunctional structures

Their variety in color, shape and size seems endless as well as their usage.

For the illustration I changed the background of the picture and the light on the elephants became...
