[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here's another addition to my Asian Elephant series.
This was clicked in the scorching evening summer sun, and this particular shot was a prelude to this family of 6 elephants (Yes, the mystery of elephants sticking together in multiples of three remains just that, a mystery) getting together so that the baby elephants were surrounded by a protective ring of mature/older elephants.
You can check out the earlier shot I'd posted of this family with all its members here.

I love your elephant shots Goldy and its nice that you had one left like this one in your archives.
I like the composition showuing this mother chewing elephant grass while keeping an eye on her two calves. The habitat BG is great too.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Goldy
very nice shot of very lovely elephant family feed on grasses. you nicely captured a mother with young from great POV. focus and colors great as like composition. thanks for sharing. best wishes my friend,

Hallo Goldy
I truely like this elephant series of yours and I think I have mentioned it before. The image as a whole is just so pleasant and most relaxing to look at, the elephants seems to be so much at ease.

This is a super image with lovely details captured and displayed with great clarity. I like the different positions of the troop as well as the different point of view of each one. Great natural colours in a pleasant setting. I just love the natural sunlight in the image, as it highlights everything to the best. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

One can never tire of looking at these denizens of the Jim Corbett NP, Goldy. They look so comfortable here in their natural home.
The quiet domesticity of an elephant family at the end of a hot summer day is very touching in this picture.
Thanks and all the best.

Hi Brother Goldy,

How are you doing. I am very sure that these big elephants are your most favorite mammals in the Corbette. This is lovely capture of these giants with their little ones. Very well composed!

Bonjour Goldy,
On se lassera jamais de tes images d'éléphants. Elles sont toutes si vivantes et raconte une histoire. Les couleurs aussi sont belles avec ces herbes presque jaunes, allant si bien avec le gris de ces mamifères. Image naturelle et si plaisante.
Un grand merci!
