Mother and Child

Elephants move in herds, and sometimes the herds are quite large, up to 100 animals, led by a wise matriarch. There is safety in numbers and this protects them from being preyed on by lions – especially important since the gestation period for an elephant is about 22 months. So, it was quite unique to see this mother elephant and her child, walking on the dry bed of Lake Amboseli, on their way to the marshes, unaccompanied by any other elephants. As we sat in the jeep watching them go by, the mother glanced at me, waved with her trunk and kept going.
