White-backed Vulture (Gyps africanus) feeding on elephant body (Loxodonta africana), South Luangwa National Park, Zambia

An elephant died without any obvious reason near to my camp in South Luangwa National Park. It was interesting to inspect the place frequently and see the process of the body disappearance. Lions, hyenas, vultures and marabous took turns in silently destroying remnants of the creature that used to be invincible.
