You will notice that the elephants’ hair will change color in each photo. From the original gray fur color, it changes to white, blue, red, brown, black, etc.
These photographs were сарtᴜгed when the elephants were in close proximity to a desert lake within Namibia’s Etosha National Nature Reserve, where their hair may change color as a result of dust or mud from the lake.
When elephant hair turns green it is due to algae in the mud, sometimes elephant hair turns red due to red soil. Elephants are sometimes completely white due to being covered with dust, sun, wind, and desert sand….
Photographer Anja Denker spent 3 years moпіtoгіпɡ the seasonal behavior of elephant herds to take these interesting photos.
