Print Description

Qalypso of the QB family rests in the mid-day heat on one of Amboseli’s flat alkaline pans.  It always strikes me as odd when the elephants elect to sleep out on an open pan in the middle of the day.  Qalypso was so sleepy she allowed me to park close to her and to creep along the ground to get this low angle photograph.
