A splendid animal - An elephant from Kenya's Amboseli National Park.

My image today is from IFAW. The elephant featured is from their vital project to protect elephants in Kenya's Amboseli National Park. In collaboration with the Kenya Wildlife Service and Kenya's School of Field Studies, they're tracking six of Amboseli's elephants via GPS to learn more about where families and bulls wander. And training Maasai community scouts to protect the park's elephants.

Elephants are my favorite animal. Other than man- usually with a gun (and a pesky little army or marching ant) they have no natural enemies. Who would dare?

Magnificent beasts aren't they Nana.
