Brave one

Taken on 17 Jan 2010, in the Nagarahole forest during an evening safari.

She is the leader of a group 4-of 2 mothers and 2 calves. As our jeep approached, she came forward with her trunk raised and then tried to distract us by running in the wrong direction. Far left was a mud ditch which the forest guards fill water in. They had just taken a nice mud bath and were covered with wet mud.
The elephant in the picture has a dislocated hip and walked with difficulty.It was amazing to watch her keep her troupe safe from us.
To be continued tomorrow...
