Description: Three elephants interact as they cross the plains of the Mara

Story from behind the lens: We watched a breeding herd of elephants come toward us from a long distance away, and positioned ourselves so that if they so chose. As they got closer, we appreciated this small group of 3 who were walking along together. They seemed to be really playful, and watching their care-free interactions really were enjoyable. We decided that our motto for the trip was that any day with elephants is a good day!
