Weekly Photo Challenge-Circle



My contribution for this week’s challenge…

 The Circle of Life


I have read of elephants and their families.
elephant_N2279Amazing stuff.

Seeing them herd and protect young calves among

older herd/family members…

skelton_0285then seeing the other end of an elephant’s life.

elephant_N2268Some of the books I have read talk about elephants

mourning herd members for many years after a death,

often stopping at a skeleton and gently sniffing the bones.

I wonder had tourists interrupted this ones private moment

with an ancestor?
