While we had a few elephant sightings during our time in the Timbavati, I have not published many images of elephants.
It can be hard to photograph them in clean surroundings, but this image had a cuteness factor which warranted publication.
On our final game drive in the Motswari Private Game Reserve on the morning of 7 October, 2012, we were in off-road in very thick, dry scrub, surrounded by a breeding herd of elephants.
I counted at least 11 elephants that I could see (although there were probably more); and amongst these, there were a few juveniles.
I was fortunate enough to capture this little guy reaching for some delicious leaves and twigs.
