This African elephant was seen looking rather shy as it appeared to be covered in a woolly coat as it dusted itself a refreshing dust bath.
The wild elephants of Kenya’s Amboseli National Park roll in the dirt to protect their skin from insects and the intense heat.
This amazing photo was taken by amateur photographer Marina Cano, who has just returned from a three-week holiday in Africa.
Marina is dedicated to camping out in the wild and uses a long lens so she can capture the animals in their most intimate moments without disturbing them.
Another emotional photo shows a lost baby elephant pulling his mother’s trunk shortly after they were reunited.
And in another shot, a terrifying male elephant is seen bobbing on the ground as the rest of his herd emerges from a cloud of dust.
Marina, from Santander, Spain, said: “I’ve been a photographer for 25 years but haven’t had the chance to travel as much as I’d like.
“But for this collection, I spent a week in South Africa photographing and another two weeks in Kenya – even though it felt like a ten-day vacation with four days of traveling over terrible roads.
“I spent two days photographing elephants in Amboseli, two and a half days in Masai Mara, and one day in Nakuru Lake.
‘I would spend the day photographing wildlife, from 6.30 am to 6.30 pm, then pick my favorites.
‘It was a great experience. The animals were so beautiful, and I loved taking pictures of them.
“I thought they would be wary of me, but they didn’t mind people. Furthermore, I was safe in the car most of the time.
‘I could have stayed there forever, which was really amazing. I hope I will have a chance to come back again. “
