Lovely shot ,and like the dark mood as it does evoke the urgency of finding their life source.
The comp is also spot on and really adds to the "movement" within the frame.

Great shot, as others have said nice composition, also I like the way the dry dirt ground contrasts the storm clouds above.

That is indeed a beautiful picture what I call a wall hanger. What I found interesting are the three
elephants in the rear and the youngster up front second one in are in perfect cadence.
