Elephants on Parade





One of the reasons for my recent absence from this blog was a trip to Zambia. Whilst there we came across these big fellas who'd just strolled in from neighbouring Zimbabwe. One of them took an interest in us and to our surprise decided to wander over and take a closer look.

We also came across this thirsty specimen below, busy drinking up most of the Zambezi.



He also seemed to be interested in us...



And was happy to demonstrate his strength for the camera by attempting to pull down the nearest tree using its creepers...!




Unfortunately this was not entirely succesful, and after a number of failed attempts the big lad was forced to call it a day and wandered off in a bit of a huff having been bested by a plant.
