Nursing Elephant Calf

Species: African Elephant/Elephantidae | Location: Serengeti National Park, Tanzania

In the forested area of the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania we watched this wonderful elephant family as they went about their undisturbed daily life. I was in awe at how the family came in as if to protect the nursing baby and mother. I've always heard how protective they are, and it was awesome to actually see it in action in their habitat.

I've been a passionate nature photographer for about 15 years, and being out with wildlife in their natural habitat is my absolute favorite. I travel as much as I can to see the many different, wonderful species.
