This is a small family group of a larger herd of elephants cooling down at the Rooidam Waterhole in the Addo Elephant National Park. You can tell from the mud and splash marks that some of them had enjoyed some time either in or near the water. The elephants had been there for a while when this group gathered to move off. Spot the two calves amidst that forest of legs.
Here is a closer view of one of them.
The one on the left is hungry. For the first two or three years the calves are totally dependent on their mothers for feeding.
While this one waits patiently for a gap between the forest of legs.
