We tried to let the family pass as undisturbed as possible but couldn't help screaming at the funny baby. The mother scented trouble and started to charge us with the ears wide open protecting the little elephant behind her huge body. We hold our breath and stoped clicking with the cameras. That was enough for her to change her agressive mind. She turned away and kept pushing the baby with the trunk untill they disappeared under acacia trees. We breathed with relief finally.

A great capture, Sergey. It brings out beautifully how the baby is staying close to the mother. The colours look natural and the DOF if good.

great photo. I like the subject - the mother and baby, the exposure is spot on, and the colours of the elephants and background are great and it is soo sharp. I like this shot a lot - one of the best wild life ones in a little while.

Only one thing to say: superb photo.
I have see elephants in Malewi but it was impossible to approach them.
