2020-10-25: Elephants

I’ve come to the end of the photos I flagged from Kenya to revisit, and finish things off with a few of my very favourite animal.

The tree in the background was a favourite of the elephants passing through. They were all stopping to have a good scratch, and if any individual stayed too long, they were given a little to shove to get going from the next one in line, which is what had just happened here.
An evening drinks stop in Selenkay Conservancy, glass of wine in one hand, camera in the other, and a lone elephant having a drink at the waterhole. Of course the time of day and lack of tripod created some challenges, but the image bring back happy memories and that’s all that really matters.

Part of an enormous herd of elephants seen in the Maasai Mara. We basically just parked the vehicle in a clearing surrounded by fever trees and watched group after group meander by, grazing, finding great scratching post trees and visiting amongst other family groups.

Happiness amongst the elephants 🙂

Elephants are such a wonderful subject for monochrome images. I know I have shared dozens before, but what’s three more?

Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

This bull spent each afternoon around our camp, browsing among the tents and enjoying the waterhole.
