Elephant calf - born 3rd March 2012!!

Darlington alerted us to the to the arrival of a new Elephant calf born last night.

After patiently waiting for a good few hours I managed to get a clear image - of both the new born calf and one or two others. As any photographer will testify it takes a great deal of patience to photograph Elephant calves as the are always concealed by the family group or hidden between the mothers front legs.

Here is a series of images taken this morning - the last one being the newest arrival!!

Somewhere in that Group is the new calf!!


Now what is this??

Some 'hide and seek'!

'Wow, this grass is long'!

The cause of all the excitement.
If you look carefully you will notice traces of dried blood below the 
calf's eye.
What a privilege.
