    This is a rescued elephant calf in Bandipur National Park. In India Elephants often come to the villages to raid crops. It was one such incident that made the villagers take drastic steps to drive away the herd. In the commotion this one month old calf was left behind, which was subsequently rescued by the forest department. Still wild by heart-the trauma reflects in its eyes. Elephants are much like humans, emotional and extremely intelligent.The shock was so hard that this calf didn't survive

    What an interesting shallow depth of field to really show me this infants eye, the emotion is in her eye and the tragedy of her story. Please excuse, my accidentally double clicking on the like-heart symbol- my hand & computer are not in sync.
