A close family group and good colour harmony, Ron. Like mum's trunk pointing at the child.

that's some scar on the larger ones cheek!

Great photo Ron.

I was just reading an old narrative from a woman flying over an elephant herd in the 1950's.

it said roughly (but I'll place inverted comma's & misquote anyway).
" As we flew overhead, the elphants stampeded & hid in a forested area, only to re-emerge with the females in a circle surrounding & hiding the males , who with their big tusks knew they were a target".

How sad now, that young, female, male, old..all are targets :-(

I like this Ron, besides the fact that you should go to bed earlier, could you allow mods?
Would like to have a go at this one. Wink

Keith.

What a wonderful family grouping, it must have been a real pleasure to observe and photograph them in their natural environment
