We went to the Zoo this weekend with some friends. On our way up to where the elephants are, we saw that they had the baby elephant out and a small crowd had gathered to listen and watch as they talked about the elephant. Unfortunately, we got there at the tale end of the presentation, but I still got to take some pictures before they took him back inside. This one is probably the best of what I took:
The zoo also has two adult female elephants. One of them had the baby a little over two years ago. Interestingly, a couple of years prior to that, I managed to get a picture of the mother-to-be (not knowing that she was pregnant at the time) right before they changed the elephant area. Now they have it surrounded by a fence of thick wire so it's almost impossible to get pictures of the elephants without wire being in the picture somewhere. I was really glad that I had thought to bring my camera and take pictures that day. Now I have some pictures of the baby elephant without wire in the way too. :)
Elephants are one of my favorite animals, which is why my Etsy shop has elephants in the name. Purple is my favorite color and 42, according to The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, is the answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. And now you know why I named my shop 42PurpleElephants!
