Sunday Nature Stills – 06/05/2022

It’s neat to see the emotions and social structure of other animal groups.  This is a photograph that I took in the Serengeti when we came across a herd of elephants.  The young elephant on the left was previously playing with a baby elephant and got a little rough.  In this picture, the adult female on the right is telling it to knock it off and calm down.  After I took this picture, the young elephant started pouting and wandered off moping.  If you are out in the world for a while, you start to see that human behavior isn’t really all that exclusive to humans.  We are just one group on a long list of complicated, self-aware, creatures.
