Oh, Jagdeep, this is just so special. You are so blessed just to have witnessed this in person, but to capture such a photo is icing on the cake. I sure understand the smile. They sure look like they are having fun. :+1: :+1:

Oh my gosh Jagdeep, this is such a wonderful touching photo. Since this is not something i am likely to see, thank you for posting it.

This one is so cute… had to have been staged but that is giving a lot of credit. How do you stage baby elephants? I have no idea but you really caught something special here. The light is fantastic as well.

This is SO cute! And well done, too! Tack sharp, and gorgeous color, and they are just adorable. Good reason to smile.
