This image was taken while on safari in Botswana. It was late in the day as the sun was going down when we came across a small group of elephants passing directly in front of our vehicle. We stopped and watched as they made sure this calf was surrounded by its elders at all times. They stopped briefly and the calf touched it's mother's leg with its little trunk as if for reassurance. Such a touching moment to witness.
