Very young little elephant moving with mother and family. This family were bathing in a waterhole but were too far to really capture with my lens. The intelligence and inter-relatedness of the elephant is readily apparent and adds to the preciousness of their survival as a species.
Female elephants form a matrilineal family group, with 10 or more members; 3 pairs of mothers, their young and led by the eldest female. On the right is a tiny baby behind her mother's hind leg. The elephant on the left, only half in the picture appears to be the matriarch.
