Will Burrard-Lucas captured a series of black-and-white photographs of a "big tusker" roaming in Kenya's Tsavo National Park. Shortly after he took his last shot, the "elephant queen" died of natural causes. It was a rare and extraordinary sight with fewer than 30 of these animals still existing in Africa.
