17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Look

Elephants are still common in Sri Lanka, they roam the land freely and are respected by the island natives as ancient and powerful creatures. Though it is forbidden to feed the animals, locals and tourists will engage with them offering snacks: but this has now inspired elephants to pursue this by waiting on roads for people to stop. This is that interrogative look which embeds the question: ‘Do you have something for me?’.
