When I see elephants in the wild, I get the same feeling as I did at my very first encounter with these mighty animals. I can only describe this feeling with the word humility. Not just because these animals are incredibly intelligent and display fascinating social behaviour, but also because they’re extremely large and impressive. Young elephants need a lot of physical contact. That’s why their trunk is mostly in contact with their mother, sisters or aunts. The elephant calf I photographed along with her mother in the Maasai Mara is starting to play with a leaf. She lifts the leaf onto her head with her trunk, as if she’s putting on a hat. The facial expressions she makes as she does this are just really funny.
