Cross legged

By AnnChown  
South Luangwa, Zambia. I love the nonchalant cross legged stance of the baby elephant. Comments and/or criticisms are very welcome, as usual.
Thank you all for your lovely response to Blizzard with special thanks to Kate for her UA.

When you are that age Ann the legs go in any direction - a charming shot with excellent detail.

Wonderful scene Anne ( we were witness to a still birth and a Hyena/Elephant confrontation ) Sad but natural ( the Hyena's won )

I've heard they pull up cabbages with their tails.
It's a little disgusting what they do with them.

Fabulous picture!
