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?

    • I don’t understand how people can take a high powered rifle and shoot these gentle giants from athe safety of 100-200 metres. Is just NOT sport, hunting or whatever you want to call it. Same applies to many African animals. I hope to return before some of the endangered are wiped off the face of the earth. The only thrill I see when shooting African animals is if you are armed with with a Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Sony etc, etc 🙂 Apologies for my first rant of 2016…am fairly certain there are more to come.
