The book "The Wildlife Photographs" reflects the image of wild animals in their natural environment, captured by the top photographers of the National Geographic Society.

Few wildlife photographers have worked in such close proximity with their subjects, as he notes in some of the wry autobiographical vignettes that open his book, and Künkel's 120-plus color plates capture elephants in all aspects of their daily lives: eating, bathing, traveling, playing, fighting, and, well, making other elephants......
