13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Elephant tender moment captured at sunset

A herd of elephant were walking along. The calf struggled to catch up with the herd. Being the tender and protective mothers elephants are, the mom walked back to show some tender love to the calf and then take it along, as the sunset was almost there.
