The Young Mother

While on a morning safari in Dhela zone of Corbett Tiger Reserve, we spotted a single Elephant feeding in the meadow. We were the only vehicle there and soon spotted some other Elephants in the Lantana. Keeping safe distance we observed the giants feed. Soon other vehicles hoarded at this place and what I saw is all I had heard of- the arrogant, ignorant drivers, guides and tourists of Corbett. Though I tried to warn, an overconfident driver parked his vehicle too close to the animals. We all had missed the tiny calf in the herd and hence the adults charged at this vehicle. A close call, we were really disappointed with this behaviour and left the spot immediately.
