Stroppy teenager

By Newtman
If you know how to age an elephant, you will realise that this one is about seven or eight with tusks that length. Of all the elephants in a family group, however, this was the one that went out of its way to come close and pass right in front of our vehicle, just to emphasise who had right of way. The whole stroppy attitude reminded me of a difficult teenager. Apologies to any teenagers who read this!

Another great shot. I had a teenager just like this (He is now 35 and is still stroppy!!)
Thanks for all your comments on my photos.and for putting me right on the purple heron. It didn't like being seen and dissappeared very quickly.
