On my recent visit to Kruger National Park in South Africa in May 2023, I had the opportunity to visit the northern end of the park. An area less crowded and more peaceful, full of many scenic river views. And so many elephants! We spent hours watching the interaction of wildlife at waterholes, some man-made, some natural, all giving much information about the environment and its inhabitants.
This painting is of a young bull elephant, maybe three years of age, who came bursting onto the waterhole scene, growling and trumpeting, causing a heard of Cape Buffalo to scatter. What a surprise for me. I never imagined a young elephant would have so much power. He was so small, but so confident and bold.
