Baby Elephant While Eating breakfast in Samburu

Tiny Baby Elephant. We had seen a group of elephants heading toward the river while on safari. Our guide took us to the place where they were headed at the river and we waited while we ate breakfast. They finally arrived. This baby was extremely young and very wobbly on its feet. The mother and other juvenile were very protective, but I finally got the shot when the mother was drinking.
