Ellies: Rush the finishing line


There is a drinking dam about 80 yards to the left. The elephants put in a little rush at the prospect of the water. Other pictures during this week, will be the same area.

Quelle jolie troupe. J'aime beaucoup les petits.

We have had so much on our news lately about the declining numbers of elephants due to ivory poaching, Louis. It is such a delight in contrast to see your picture of happy animals running to water
Louis: Yes, what is going on with elephants and rhino's is just disgusting. And they are a delight to observe in nature, indeed.

Just imagine this lot chasing you!
Louis: It wouldn't be a long chase, Chris.
I remember the enjoyment of watching elephants in the Krugar park Louis. I like the little ones and how they hang on to mother's tail.
Louis: This picture was taken in the Kruger - and I agree that they are a joy to watch, gutteridge.
You can show me elephants all day. Love this.
Louis: Will do all week, Mary smile
Great shot Louis, I would love to see a herd of Elephants in the wild, especially the little ones, they are so cute.
Louis: It is a worthwhile item for a bucket list, Brian.
beautiful shot, Louis. good to see non working elephants, specially the kiddos.
Louis: African elephants are not the working types. Something with the temperament. Its been tried but low success. Traditionally, we used oxen for the heavy lugging. Thanks for the comment Ayush.
This is a great shot. I like the little one going trunk to tail...
Louis: Thanks Larry. Sometimes they need pulling power for xtra speed.
It is terrible what the human race continues to do to these wonderful creature
Louis: Even worse than this, is what the human race is doing to itself, Bill.
Wonderful shot, Louis!
Louis: Thank you Tom.
