Wednesday 28th March..cam pics!
The rain is falling, and the family is getting ready to head for the trees!
i counted 6 original and two more incoming on Gerda's last pic. that other black box, Gerda, seems too small to be an ellie ..just my judging by size of the two incoming which are at approximately the same distance away as that black box you mentioned.
I am guessing there might be two more young males ousted from a breeding herd somewhere and joining these bulls . The two young ones with shorter tusks that are sparring/playing might be challenging for their position in this bull group?
BTW, i did not see these ellies live, i am judging only by what i see on the pics...and all GREAT captures , too. Thanks.
Fani, on this pic I count 8 and maybe 9 if the black spot on the left is another ellie ?
Gerda beat me in counting...so go to the next pic
I have to apologize...I missed the last part of action...cam froze at all....
16.36 pm they didn't give up...
and they keep playing
