Elephant in the Kruger Park, RSA, October 2012.

Elephants at Sunset on the Chobe River in Botswana. Farmers in the area were burning their dry fields... the sky was filled with smoke, which created this great mood.

 

View On Black

 

This photo was taken in Amboseli (where else!) and this elephant family was happily munching away on the green grass totally unperturbed by our presence. As the little ones tried to stray or misbehave they were quickly disciplined by the mother. She had just led them from the watering hole (see the dark water makes on their lower bodies) and they stayed with us a good 15 minutes before re-joining their herd.

 

I think elephants are unique. Not only are they beautiful, they are calm, gentle and sensitive – qualities that you wouldn’t naturally associate with the largest herbivore in the planet. And they stir something inside us, or me at least. Whenever I look at them I feel overwhelmed by love and I want to hug them and never let go (don’t worry I haven’t done this yet!). Maybe they evoke such strong sentiments because they are so genteel and dignified. And maybe because I know all wild elephants today face grave danger. As another year comes to an end I hope and pray that we all can help these adorable creatures in the years to come. May there never be a time when elephants don’t roam our wildernesses.

Young male elephants, in the same herd, will interact with each other at a relatively early age. As they get older they will play-fight with other young males of a similar age from other families.

They learn their own strength, build knowledge and develop the skills which they will need as mature males. When they reach about 12 to 15 years of age, they will leave the family and drift alone or join other families and later form groups. (Shingwedzi, Kruger National Park, RSA)

Elephants are sensitive fellow animals where if a baby complains, the entire family will rumble and go over to touch and caress it.

 

did you ever wonder why elephants are different colors? I is because of the color of the mud they roll in.

Elephant eating a lily in Zimbabwe

In general I find repetition fairly tedious like going to work every day. However something’s I would never tire of repeating one of these being close to elephants. They are such extraordinarily beautiful creatures.

We were sat in our jeep in the Amboseli Natonal Park watching a large group of elephants on our left when we saw a single elephant approaching from the right. He was walking purposefully towards us obviously intent on joining the group. He could easily have diverted round the front or rear or the jeep but he just kept heading without hesitation towards us. There was then a brief stand-off while he looked at us now elephants always win these encounters. We reversed the jeep about 12 feet the elephant then walked past us giving us a look of pure disdain. The only sound was a light grunt and the sound of those feet hitting the dusty ground .....just magic.

I will be away this weekend so catch up with you guys next week Have great weekends

 

THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT HAVE A GREAT DAY

African elephants don't just come to water sources to drink. You can often see them cooling off in the water.

Elephants are well known for their very complex communication abilities. They communicate through the senses of hearing, smelling and seeing. But they are also extremely tactile animals, a feature that has made the day of many wildlife photographers.

 

Hope you will enjoy this shot.
