Wildlife photographer Greg Du Toit has captured powerful images of silhouetted animals in southern and eastern Africa to show “the mystery and intrigue of Africa.”

The animals, including lions, giraffes, flamingos, elephants, leopards, rhinoceros and zebras, are illuminated against sunrises and sunsets in a range of hues.
The photos are part of a wider series called Dusk to Dawn and were shot in Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia.
Mr Du Toit told Media Drum news agency: “I simply want to convey the incredible diversity, mystery and wonder that I feel for my wild subjects.
“What the camera has the power to do, through silhouette photography, is to simply de-clutter our world.”
Du Toit specialises in lowlight imagery, spending hours to get the perfect timings for his photos.
Du Toit previously won the Wildlife Photographer of the Year prize in 2013, with his photo entitled Essence of Elephants.
