The mother elephant demonstrated devotion by gently lifting the ѕtгᴜɡɡɩіпɡ calf with her trunk and feet each time it feɩɩ.

Stols expressed his awe at the sighting, remarking that it was the youngest elephant he had ever seen.

The emotional experience of observing the mother’s gentle guidance and the calf’s swimming abilities left a lasting impression on the photographer, who dreams of witnessing an elephant birth someday.
