"Elephant Prayers" - Madikwe Game Reserve, South Africa

This post serves as a triple-up dishing of #cutenessoverload , #wednesdaywildlife (courtesy of +Mike Spinak) and #elephantwednesday (courtesy of +Diego Cattaneo, +Matthias Haeussler and +Louisa Catharine Forsyth).

Young African Elephants are usually up to the most enjoyable (and often strange) antics. This youngster in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve was all attitude and no messing around! He mock-charged us a few times before bending down on the road and rubbing his face in the dirt. The pose standing up from there reminded me of a prayerful kneeling down by some sort of priest or monk.

Enjoy this one! Please feel free to share with others who might not be in my circles at the moment.
