Mothers Day


For Mothers Day, I remembered watching a mother elephant guide her newborn calf in Botswana in November 2015.   The frisky youngster wandered off and got daring for a bit, then was steered back in line and got his needed reassurances from mom. But, when mother said it was time to go,
her baby got the message that playtime was over and left at her side. 

Happy Mothers Day to the mothers out there.

Great shot! It's amazing to see an elephant in miniature. Very cute. Not as cute as Willa, but still cute.
