British photographer Peter Adams captures wildlife shots above the Okavango Delta (19 Pics)

  • Peter Adams flies above the Okavango Delta, Botswana, leaning out of a helicopter and photographing animals
  • The 56-year-old had the door removed for a better shot, and describes it as a 'unique perspective'
  • Says he was surprised at the number of elephants he saw over the UNESCO Heritage Site 
Peter Adams' stunning photographs include a herd of buffalo swirling in the lush green grass

The wild animals have been made to look like tiny insects in these awe-inspiring aerial shots
London-born photographer Peter Adams was able to snap these amazing shots by leaning out of a Robinson R44 helicopter
They may be giants of the plain, but when the giraffes are photographed from above, they don't appear so mammoth
The elephants may have imagined they would be left alone when taking to the watering hole, but Peter Adams was keen for the perfect photo
From swirling buffalo to a tower or herd of giraffes marching along single file these pictures give a different perspective on big game life on the Okavango Delta, Botswana
Peter had the door removed from his small helicopter so he could lean out and capture scintillating shots
The British-born photographer effectively captures the beautiful and expansive landscape in Botswana

The Okavango is one of the seven natural wonders of Africa and became the 1,000th site to be listed on the UNESCO world heritage list in June 2014
Others in the area are keen to explore their own safari, but few will be able to produce such an expansive photo-set as Peter
