Personal Protection details of a elephant calf

This is a portrait of a species that takes care of one another, sensitive animals that remember, that mourn the death of family, that move in groups, that many cultures hold in high regard and yet that are endangered! Here a calf is getting flanked by elder members of the family to ensure no danger could even come close to the baby elephant. Location: Manas National park, Assam State, India
