How neat it was to see this family of elephants feeding on grasses in their natural habitat and not in some zoo. I have read that elephants on the average have a calf every five years, so I don't think they could both be hers.

The tinniest calf was a joy to watch, it was always running around and seemed to have fun chasing the slightly older one.

If I remember correctly all the elephants we saw were in tiny to medium sized groups except for one lone bull, which I will post at a later time.

Lovely family shot.The baby looks like its having a really great time. The colors are very delicately captured, such as the dust on the female's ear.

Beautiful mother elephant with two calves by her side in their natural habitat, Ron. The scene exudes peace and contentment.
This is yet another gem of a picture from your Tanzania trip. Thanks for sharing it!

Hello Ron,
Wonderful image with this splendid specie. The colors and details are stunning.

Hello Ron,
Beautiful picture of Elephants. I like winter colour of Africa. ODD NUMBER composition always works well. Nice colour and good sharpness. I prefer more DOF, although.
Thanks for Sharif,
