When Heather T. kindly shared her November 2015 Tanzania Safari photos with me, this sequence of photographs made me want to know more. What happened here? What was the end result?
I emailed Heather and this is her account.
” The elephant was chasing a lion couple because it was leading a small group of elephants which included a baby elephant they wanted to protect. Indeed there was trumpeting and the elephant stood its ground, scaring the little cats away – twice! The first time they did not move far enough away for her liking. ”
Oh, I would have loved being part of this conversation in the Safari vehicle with my friends.
“Here she comes.” “She’s scooting them away.” “Oh watch out lions. Don’t make her angry” “What, moving in again” “Go get them mama elephant.” “Oh, the look of defeat.” “Better luck next time.” “Pick another animal.” “She was so scared, she pissed in her pants”
Okay, this is what is going through my mind when I am looking at these photographs having read Heather’s account.
A memorable moment on Safari!
