Here’s an­other im­age that’s just cute, cute, cute. I par­tic­u­larly like the gen­tle in­ter­ac­tion be­tween this in­quis­i­tive lit­tle calf and the older ele­phant that Janet has cap­tured, so big and yet so gen­tle. The gor­geous golden light is so soft as this mother and child make their way to drink at Long Pool in Mana Pools, Zim­babwe. As a re­sult, de­spite the calf be­ing shad­owed by the adult, ev­ery de­tail can be seen. This gen­tle wash of colour is of­ten re­ferred to as paint­ing with light, and is a very good rea­son to take pic­tures at sunrise and sun­set rather than in harsh, con­trasty mid­day sun.
