Out of the Jurisdiction: Baby Elephant

We were fortunate to see scores of elephants, including this photogenic baby elephant, during twice-daily game drives at the Motswari Game Preserve.

Motswari is part of the Timbavati Game Preserve, a group of private preserves adjoining the Kruger National Park.  The land owners in Timbavati have removed their fences so game can roam more freely over a much larger territory.

This is a great photo. Photos like these make one wonder how people could continue to shoot elephants, as some people do.

Little cutie, those tusks have a long way to go yet, let's hope he manages to hold on to them.
