Let the African Bush Trumpet with Joy

The African bush in the Addo Elephant Park in South Africa, suddenly became silent. It was the silence of expectation. It was the silence of respect. The elephant family was waiting, tenderly surrounding one of its female elephants. The gift of new life was coming. And then it happened. A baby elephant was born. Let all the African Bush trumpet with joy!

There are 2 pictures. Please scroll down. Thank you.

How privileged we humans are. We did not see the actual birth but we did see the family cherishing and protecting the new born. The first picture shows the family protecting the baby. But where is the baby elephant? Look to the right of the young elephant. The tiny elephant could not walk properly and was still pink in places.

The last picture is of the baby staying close to what can only be its mother.

Words cannot describe how grateful we are to have been close to such a joyful occasion in the glory of life,

To God be the Glory

Thanks to our two good friends who made this viewing possible.
