#TAKEOVER@flunkingmonkey: "It was such a blessing to see these two baby elephants playing together. The smaller one behind had such childlike wonder, as it was teasing its bigger sibling by literally trying to climb on top of it, I loved how they hadn’t a care in the world. Studying Biology was such a pleasure for me, although most of my degree had me sitting behind a desk with my head in books. I’m so glad that I now get to explore this world and experience natural wonders such as this. The Masai Mara preserved savannah has allowed these animals to live natural lives, whilst helping advance scientific research on the behaviour and physiology of so many animals helping us better understand and protect them"

#TAKEOVER@flunkingmonkey: "While I was in Kenya I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to view first hand The Great Wildebeest Migration across the Mara River in Kenya, from the northern Serengeti plains. We waited on the edges of the Mara River for close to two hours as we viewed the masses on one side slowly edge towards moving, then it finally began! This amazing natural wonder is a must-see and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to go on Safari in either Tanzania or Kenya. It’s amazing how such a simple search for green grass driven by seasonal rains cause these mass migrations. With southern migration taking place from July to October and Northern Migration taking place from December to March, it would be best to plan any future safaris around then!"

#TAKEOVER Over the next couple of days, the wonderful @flunkingmonkey will be taking over our @instagram feed! Neel is a biologist by day, and a travel instagrammer by day/night 😉 so we couldn't resist asking Neel to share some insight into one of his latest adventures! "I’ve been writing about travel for over a year now and have now started to integrate my scientific background into my online work. I currently shoot on the Canon EOS 6D Mark II with my go-to lens, the 16-35mm and occasionally the 24-105 mm. I took this image during my first ever safari trip in my one of my ‘home’ countries. This beautiful lioness had just finished a hunt and came to rest in the shade - they were so unbothered by us, giving us occasional glances, wondering why these weird cars were around. I luckily caught this beauty as she turned her head, just catching the light on her right eye"

If you were to recreate this photo, how would you do it? Could you guess the settings @guth.co captured this with?

The deep, dark reds and oranges of autumn make for a great photo - and it's the perfect time to experiment. If you don't fancy heading outside during these colder months, this could be the time to take up food (or should we say, drink?) photography. As long as you can ace your lighting set up, you'll be in a good place to start trying out those flat lays! Image by @linda_lomelino.
