I've got a baby elephant, but it won't wash the car...

Apologies for the poor quality of these, but I couldn't get close enough to get a really good shot.
Anyway, fill your boots.
I'm talking to you, Arch!:biggrin:

I was quite pleased with that one. It was hard to balance taking photos with looking and going 'Aaaah';).

It was, it was. I was actually about 10 yards from them, I just got lucky with the zoom lens. Not bad for a small digital compact.
Now, the elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka, I got that close to them *holds up thumb and finger, touching* they were gorgeous! *glees*. And I bathed a few in the river.

Sadly all the photos (and I got loads) were on the hard drive that blew up.

oh! oh! OH!

Want! WANT!


Something about the way they hold each other's tails...

And in that first pic - that baby looks so... earnest - like it's really concentrating on getting on and being an elephant....

<sigh>

Wish I had an elephant....

I got to ride on an elephant when I was in Nepal a few years ago. Absolute magic, right up until we stumbled across a mother rhino and her baby. She was not at all pleased to see us!
