A beautiful image... lovely to see.
That's one mama I wouldn't want to mess with! And I didn't know elephant young 'un's were called "cubs." I always think of cubs as little, furry/fuzzy things. :-)
Didn't know baby elephants were called cubs .. I guess I have always called them baby elephants.
What a dear and gentle photo of the biggest and most powerful of animals! They look almost like sculptures of the same clay in the wild. National Geographic shot!
A magnificent shot that somehow reminds me of Duerer's (sorry, can't find the Umlaut) of a description of a rhinoceros. It was remarkably accurate too.Most impressive definition of the skin.
Thank goodness they are finally being protected to live there lives and enjoy their families in their natural homes! We would all be less, even if we don't get to see them up close in the wild like you did, if these marvelous elephants were not in the world to inspire us, stimulate our imaginations, hold our admiration, and peak our curiosity. A great image JM!

@Diane: Thank you for the (right) 'calf' word! :-)@Jacob and Joan Elizabeth: I guess Diane has just cleared things up, true? :-)
Great shotos as is the earlier desert scene. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
One day I'll travel out there to see elephants.
