The rains came earlier than expected this year, the trees and the bushes are fresh and alive. The leaves are colored in several hues of green and are beautifully shaded as the morning rays fall on them. A stunning Sri Lankan Elephant makes his way across the jungle path. A young male, he seems happy to see such greenery after the drought. With his trunk raised, he sniffs the fresh air… Observing this portrait brings a smile… We often forget how much animals enjoy being free and enjoying some fresh air. This is a wonderful capture which will brighten up any living space!
