Matriarch 4

The elephants in Amboseli are the best-known free-ranging elephant population, due to ongoing studies of their habits dating back to 1972. The population in Amboseli of some 1200 elephants (figure 2011) is one of the few in which these animals span the whole family range from newborn calves to wise old matriarchs in their sixties. I love the majestic way in which these three great creatures are walking towards me. For me, this one brief moment truly incorporates everything that this extraordinary species stands for: social complexity, longevity and intelligence. I hope that I have captured all of this through my lens.
