I’ve been posting what feels like quite serious posts the last while so thought it’s time to just keep it simple.
Lats week in the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve we spent some quality time with a group of ellies and this little guys stole the show.

Always brave when mom’s close by hey?
Elephants are great to watch and photograph as, compared to something like lions, they are always doing something. This make for great sightings and photographic opportunities.
When you have a large herd around you look for the youngsters or try and identify individuals which are active and might give you that special photographic moment.
In this case all of my attention was focused on this little youngster and when he gave us a little shake to show us how dangerous he is – with mom close by just in case – I clicked the shutter.
Amazing animals and always great to spend time with them on a photo safari.
Until next time.
