The photo shows a family of asian elephants (Elephas maximus)in the wild.Typically the baby is in the middle of two parents for protection as usual.These elephants usually seen in big groups.They are seen feeding on grass,plant leaves and need plenty of water.Shooting them was difficult due to thick jungle but through an empty space this shot was possible.
