Safari Sunday: The time I saw into an elephant’s soul (and she saw into mine)

Posted by barb on Mar 12, 2017 in Pictures, Recreation, Travels |

This was the only picture I needed to make the safari worth it. Honestly, even without the picture, the experience alone was enough – the proof of the experience is just the icing. It is by far my favorite of the 10,000+ pictures that we took.

We had found a group of elephants in Chobe, so we pulled over near where they would cross the road. One of the elephants took a few quick steps toward the truck – it was heart stopping (and our guide had his hand on the ignition, ready to get us out if necessary). When she stopped, she was no more than 15 feet away, and she and I looked into each other’s eyes…or that’s what it felt like.

This picture is not cropped and was not taken with the full zoom of my lens. I took exactly one picture, then put the camera down to take in the moment.

Seeing her soul
