Photo Of The Day By Douglas Croft

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Walk With Me” by Douglas Croft. Location: MalaMala Game Reserve, South Africa.

“This was the day I fell in love with elephants,” explains Croft. “We sat on the banks of the Sand River all afternoon as five large family groups gathered around us. We couldn’t move, so we sat and enjoyed watching elephants be elephants. The little ones ran and fell and climbed on each other, but the tiny ones stayed quite close to their moms. As the sun fell and the shadows got long, they filed back across the river and disappeared into the bush. We felt blessed to have experienced this day and pray that future generations will be able to see these amazing animals in their environment.”
