Keep the engine running.<br />
<br />
Photographer Richard Du Toit, 51 kept calm as a Bull Elephant looms large in the drivers window.  <br />
<br />
Richard explains "The elephant was completely relaxed, and has no doubt seen numerous vehicles in his lifetime. Many of animals you encounter in the Kruger Park are quite relaxed. However one is staggered by the size of these animals when you are near to them – elephants truly have such a mighty presence.<br />
<br />
I didn’t feel worried at all but of course my engine stayed running. He looked at me with a look that made me feel I should leave him alone.<br />
