Elephants are magnificent, beautiful, and emotional beings with the ability to pull at your heartstrings when you see them.
They are very protective of their young and create bonds that last a lifetime.
When danger appears, the family will thrust their child toward the group’s center.
The alarm call is followed by a symphony of loud calls as the herd protects one of its own bulls from harm; in this case, it was a bull elephant.
Peter Delaney, a wildlife photographer, captured the moment in breathtaking black-and-white photographs.
The infant was squealing loudly when he was attempting to remove it from its mother, so the entire herd surrounded it.
The herd was unhappy that the bull was kicking the baby and its cries and shrieks rang out loudly.
The group’s mothers and aunts attempted to soothe the youngsters.
Fortunately, the bond between the herd was stronger than the rogue bull’s will, and they were able to rally around the baby and keep it safe.
