young elephant
Photographer: Susan Tomley
Location: Tarangire National Park, Tanzania, Africa (2013)
Story: 
We came across a family of elephants at the start of our first day on safari in Tarangire National Park. The elephants, quietly grazing, sometimes approached our vehicle in a non-threatening manner. There were traces of red dust on the coat of this juvenile elephant showing evidence of wallowing in a red African dirt bath.
