Most of you've noticed the that the new-borns are tucked away right in the middle of a group or right under the mother.

This became more of a behavioural aspect when herd after herd got the calves in the middle of the herd upon seeing the safari.

Hope you like this shot of four, a rare one.

Thanks for passing by!

Hello Goldy,
Though this shot spoils your threes theory, it is the best one of your Elephant series IMHO!
I like the composition showing two mothers with their child and depicted from a fine POV with excellent sharpness and natural colours.
Wel done and thanks,
With best wishes to you and Caroline,

Hello Goldy,
A beautiful and touching moment, great image very well done, thanks! The POV is very good. Excellent detail and sharpness.
Best regards Siggi

These four in a group contradict your theory of three, Goldy :).
Another good image of these mother elephants with their babies looking vert relaxed in the babitat of JCNP. That forest at the back suggests this is a very conducive environment for all sorts of wild life.
Thanks and all the best.

hello Goldy
as scene of wild life it is particularly beautiful and sure extraordinary for us the Europeans, you are lucky where you live in such richly in wild life country,another beautiful glance and photo

Hello Goldy !
This is an amazing picture ! I love the scenery you have captured, with young elephants in the high grasses and beautiful forest in BG. It looks so peaceful... I also like the details on the elephant, the natural colors, the composition, the POV. Must have been a great moment for you. Yhanks for sharing it.

Hi Goldy,

I love these elephant shots. Fantastic to capture the two pairs in one frame. Beautiful animals and their care of their offspring seems more loving than some humans. I would love to see these for myself.


Hello Goldy,
another wonderful scene of these elephants, excellent POV and DOF, very good sharpness and splendid natural colours, very well composed.
Best regards

Hello Goldy,

Nous avons de la chance qu'un trekker photographie des éléphants. Ce sujet est très intéressant.
Belle série que la tienne!

Merci de cette étude comportementale.



Beautiful shot of the mother and her calf. You have captured a very affectionate moment. The soft morning light adds greatly to the beauty of the scene.
