•The brain of new-born elephants are 30-40% of the size of that of an adult

Hello Albert,
A nice capture of an African Elephant calv standing in close protection from its mother.
The low POV is great and set in a pleasing compositon that includes the natural framing of its mother's legs.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
Ivan

Bonjour Albert,
Ce doit-être le même que le mien mais sous un autre angle de prise de vue !!!
Très belle publication bien composée et finement détaillée sous une belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonjour Albert,
Image attendrissante de cet éléphanteau qui cherche protection auprès de sa mère. Je ne savais pas que les mamans éléphants faisaient des différences entre garçons et filles .. chez les humains on peut aussi souvent constater ce fait. Un beau document de la faune africaine.
Amicalement
Anne

Hello Albert,
