Elephant Standing

The calf had been digging in the sand for water and was trying to regain his feet. He looked so ungainly. LOL!! 
A younger calf decided that he did not want to share any water he found and went to dig a hole for himself. He is only about 2 years old but I loved this pose. J

Here is an interesting video of the elephants digging for water
