Enormous Affection by Majnouna Enormous Affection by Majnouna
My favorite photo for this trip.
We were watching a herd of elephants when these two young males started cuddling. No anthropomorphism here, the affection was visible. It went on for a long time and was incredibly moving. The photo happens to capture quasi-human expressions of surrender.
I adore elephants.

Serengeti, Tanzania

I just finished a book called 'The White Bone' by Barbara Gowdy. If you love elephants, it is a great novel. Though I warn you it is really bittersweet. I suppose a lot of great novels are.

This is a lovely shot. Beautiful animals.
