Remember the recent story of an elephant in Kruger Park being put down because he attacked a car?

Click the link below, watch the video and make up your own mind regarding who was at fault.

This photo was taken at 85 mm focal length….reasonably close to mother and calf.

Everything we did was at the behest of our guides who put the safety of their clients and the animals as their first priority.

I found the link to this story on

Africa Geographic.

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    Appreciate seeing this photo, it says everything about the strength and power of an elephant, and the unfortunate poor judgement of some people with wildlife. The outcome, post video, was upsetting. If only those folks could have just moved on when they saw they were upsetting the elephant.
