Monday photo - 28th May

Sitting in our truck in Kenya, we patiently waited for the elephants to cross the road. A range of ages and sizes, they slowly strolled past, completely uninterested in our eager faces peering out at them. Suddenly the group parted as a small baby barged through, trunk swinging as it tried to get across the road first. From deep within the older elephants, a grey trunk reached out like lightning, halting the baby's progress and pulling it back with a scolding. Only once all the other elephants had crossed was it allowed to go on, head hanging low as though thoroughly embarrassed.

Just like human children, in fact...
