I distinctively remember this afternoon with the elephants at a waterhole in Hwange National Park.
We had spent more than two hours there, and elephant just kept pouring out from the adjacent woodland. I don’t think I have ever seen a concentration of these large grey herbivores the size of this. My guest and I were sitting close to the waters edge, and were completely surrounded by elephants!
Off to the side stood a mother and calf, completely at ease and relaxed. They had already quenched their thirst, played in the mud and socialized.
The scene was just so beautiful and filled with peace!
When the little calf reached out towards his mother I tripped my shutter and captured the moment forever.
