This image was taken in Pilanesberg National Park ,South Africa
A personal note from the photographer: On this day I was in a real relaxed mood, no rush to get a specific shot and a mindset just to take in every moment. I came across a herd of elephants that was quite a distance away. I noticed this little cutie amongst them and I thought today im just going to put down my camera ,switched off my vehicle and just enjoy them for a bit. The more I observed them the smaller the gap between us became yet the tranquility in the air didn’t change. It was a special feeling indeed. The mood was so relaxed this youngster actually fell asleep for a few seconds and didn’t notice mom moving away. Mom didn’t notice either needless to say I felt something cool might happen ,I grabbed my camera and started composing a shot. Mom was probably around 8-10meters away when she noticed what has happened she quickly spun around reached out and gently yet firmly woke the sleeping cutie. That’s when I got this moment.
