Mother love

Taken in Zimbabwe at the water hole this young elephant holds on to her mother.

Taken in Hwange National Park on the west of Zimbabwe where the wardens have created fresh springs at the waterholes to guarantee the safe future for the elephant population. At this fresh spring the wardens have created a hide, made from a shipping container so it will take the weight of an elephant – just in case! This mother and child were no more than 10M from me as they drank, bathed and mixed with the herd. For me the photograph captures the natural bond between mother and infant in the wild.
