Your Daily Elephant: A Stray Hair

A stray hair against a blue sky, the tips of eyelashes, hair around tusk, and on trunk.  Wiry hair, soft hair.  African elephants are surprisingly hairy, especially when you’re this close.

  1. He really should take more care with is morning grooming 😉

  2. I like how observant you are 🙂 most people look at something and just get ‘oh look an elephant’. I like how you notice the rebel strands of hair here and there. What an awesome picture as well.

  3. Just beautiful. I could not believe how bristly their hair can be. I had the opportunity to play with a baby when I was 17. He loved having his head scratched.

    1. It’s amazing how elephants are much like humans, isn’t it?

      1. It is. That baby was very playful. She grabbed my leg with her trunk wanting to pull me around. As I pushed myself away from her, hands on her head, she played tug of war with me and then let go with me ending up on my butt and laughing!
