[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The calf was actually on the outside, but the protective mother shooed it between herself and the elder sibling...
No, this was not a herd of three, Ivan, it was a much bigger herd..30 odd elephants.

I do hope you like this shot..

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Goldy,
Your elefant-shots are so well taken. This one is no exception. So cute to see mother and calf side by side, they seem to be in a great conversation..so natural and touching picture.
I have noticed today that you have put me on the list of your favourites, I'm so touched and would like to thank you so much.
Take care

Hello Goldy,
another splendid picture of your fabulous elephants, very good sharpness and very beautiful natural colours, POV and composition are excellent.
Best regards

Hallo Goldy
Beautiful close-up with plenty of details to appreciate, especially the clarity of the eye and the area around the eye. The texture of the skin is captured with great clarity and one can almost count the lines on the face if one wanted too. I just love the way the 2nd elephant’s ear is turned to the front. Thanks for sharing this lovely and intimate scene from the elephants from Jim Corbett Park. Best regards.

Hello Goldy, wonderful shot of these cute nes:)
Great shot.
TFS and greetings,

Slav Goldy,
Nice close up of these the asian elephants.Good double portrait.splendid sharpness.

Hi Goldy,

The point of view is showing the elephant family protecting the calf. The subject is well framed. It is clear and precise. The luminosity is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.


good shot .......especially the hiding calf is taken well.........
