Description: A mother elephant guarding her baby whilst walking across the Maasai Mara

Story from behind the lens: On our drive we came across a herd of elephants by the side of the road. As they wandered off I noticed a baby walking underneath its mother for protection. It shows in the image how maternal elephants are. The black and white image gives the scene a more personal take on the relationship between a mother and baby.
