Isn’t this baby elephant a cutie? On a photo safari in Madikwe Game Reserve , South Africa, our Range Rover came across a herd of elephants. “Wait for me,” the baby elephant seemed to say as he, or she, rushed to catch up with mama. Alan and I appreciated the respect—and distance—our guide Jaco gave to the line of elephants crossing the road. According to Jaco, (did you see our post about the bug man?), you don’t want to be charged by one. We snapped away as the Range Rover idled, waiting for the elephants to walk on by. Boomer photographers will love the photo opportunities that exist on a game drive.
