Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Between

In keeping with my current Africa theme, I thought this one fit pretty well for two interpretations.  The fact that youngsters are always trying to get between objects – in this case the baby was running in between Mom’s legs.  And more importantly, the bond between Mothers and Children – no matter what the species.  Have a tremendous Holiday everyone!!

    • Thanks Robin. There were about 50 elephants in this herd. They just seemed to keep on coming. It was hard to pick out the ones to photograph – but the youngsters always get my attention.

  10. What a wonderful photo! How wonderful to see these animals out in the wilds where they belong…not in a zoo or circus.

    • We totally agree. It is a completely different experience. Its more like WE are the captive in the truck while they are doing the “spectating”.

  13. Thought I’d left a reply on this photo before my computer needed “resetting” or some strange thing…took 4 days anyway !

    Have been going back over my emails to see where I remembered looking at emails, and
    I think this charming photo is one of the last I saw.
    Thanks for sharing it.
