Description: Family of elephants, small and large, their trunks swinging from side to side, heads dipping with every step, ears flapping, moving file.

Story from behind the lens: . I remove my fleece and wish for a cooling breeze as I watch an elephant family steadily traverse the plains in Maasai Mara National Reserve. The matriarch exudes calmness. No wonder, the rest of the family is relaxed. The elephant train moves with grace and I am compelled to wish that long may they continue to prosper. Yet I know, we live in a culture that makes idealism its goal and a world that makes idealism impossible.
