Female African bush elephant shading her young calf with her ears as they cross the Savannah
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I saw this female African bush elephant and her young calf travelling across Amboseli National Park in Kenya. They were trotting to catch up with the rest of their family group, that were ahead of them on the Savannah. What caught my eye was how the calf appears to be using his trunk to ‘hold on’ to his mother and how she is shading her baby from the extreme temperature of the African sun, using her ears as giant parasols. See how the shadow from her ears is falling across the young elephant’s face and how the baby appears to be smiling! An African elephant's ears can grow to be six feet long and up to four feet wide. The skin on their ears is thin and the blood vessels are close to the surface, so heat can easily be released from their ears. Elephants often flap their ears back and forth, to create an air flow that helps to speed up the cooling process.

One of my favourite places in the world is Southern Africa. I have literally been on hundreds of game drives. I lived in Southern Africa for almost seven years and visit quite regularly. My favourite African animals are elephants. They are highly intelligent and totally mesmerising to watch. One of the best places in the world to view African elephants is Botswana - it has the highest concentration of African elephants in the world. We visited Chobe Safari Lodge some time ago and it was simply sensational, a beautiful and wondrous place. I took hundreds of photos of the elephants and have chosen a select few to share. We viewed them on safari drives, and it was a real treat to be on a boat watching them frolic in the water. There’s nothing quite like an African sunset, and I enjoyed several cocktails while watching this particular one! Enjoy! ❤️🧡

Hehe is play time! 😍🐘😍🐘 Thanks to @lilliphant

There's always one joker in every crowded room! 🤣🐘😍 Thanks to @dawntiltusk

1 month old cutie pie 🙈😍👶🏼☁️⭐️🐘

The first month was like living in our own little cloud. We were tired of all the new incredible emotions, trying to enjoy every minute, but since everything was so new, I don't think it was even possible. Mattias just wanted to spend every second in his mother's arms and we didn't blame him. After all, he did spend last 9 months inside of that human. 😊

Elephant mum and baby crossing the Ewaso Nyiro river between the Buffalo Springs and Samburu reserves. The matriarch led the way followed by the entire family in single file, with babies safely in the middle. Captured whilst having breakfast on the river bank - what a way to start the day! #takemeback 🐘
