A baby elephant wanders the plains of Mara North.
This herd of elephant, and in particular this baby provided hours of entertainment. It was always inquisitive and often playful, clearly desperate to let its adventurous side out and explore. Being so young though, it didn’t quite have the confidence, remaining close to the herd under the watchful eye of its mother.
Moving with, and photographing a herd of elephant as they wander across the plains of Mara North leaves a deep feeling of acceptance and trust. This herd was always incredibly relaxed, and almost welcoming. At times it felt like they had an understanding that I was there to there to observe and appreciate their existence.
