This too was taken on elephant back during an evening safari.
I tried any number of times to get these guys in flight... this is possibly the clearest photo I have of them.
It's surprisingly hard to hold a 500mm lens steady while sitting on the back of an elephant that would rather just wander and eat grass.
I can't remember the exact name of the type of stork... though I think it may be a black stork
