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.

Elephants have such a great herd structure ... probably one of the most complex I can think of. They do have big brain in relation to their body size, so it makes sense that they would.
The fact that they touch the bones of the fallen and sway for hours is nothing short of hair-raising.
