Cee’s B&W: Two (Elephants) and Mobile Photography (Spring in the air)

IMG_0464 -two PS

Fun facts:

  • Elephants are highly sensitive and caring animals. if a baby elephant complains, the entire family will rumble and go over to touch and caress it. Elephants express grief, compassion, self-awareness, altruism and play.

  • Elephants form deep family bonds and live in tight matriarchal family groups of related females called a herd. The herd is led by the oldest and often largest female in the herd, called a matriarch. Herds consist of 8-100 individuals depending on terrain and family size. When a calf is born, it is raised and protected by the whole matriarchal herd. Males leave the family unit between the ages of 12-15 and may lead solitary lives or live temporarily with other males. ย —ย http://www.defenders.org/elephant/basic-facts

  1. Amy, you’ve created a lovely invitation into nature and her offerings. When I opened the post, those encircling trunks were a treat. And the scene through the trees and into the unknown is very much the adventurous aspect of nature. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Thank you, Gilly! I watched the elephant (on the left) walking toward the little one, slowly reaching out with his/her trunk, then started “hugging” each other. ๐Ÿ™‚
