Photograph made in Artis Amsterdam Zoo

Hot summer afternoon – Tired of playing in the water and sand, the little baby elephant turns back to mom to feed…

Submitted to the group ´Contrasting Perceptions` because of the contrast in this image between old-young, big-small, front-back

Photograph made with Pentax K10D camera. Edited in Lightroom.
