AtoZ: Picture of the week, Addo Elephant National Park


On Fridays I like posting pictures more than text, so today I leave you with pictures of Elephants that I toke in the Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa back in 2008.

I have to confess that I toke hundreds and hundreds of photos. In fact, the Addo Elephant Park was not the first place where I captured elephants, but it was the place where I found them in greater numbers.

And there’s a problem with elephants, they are too cute!! The baby elephants are just adorable.

After the hundreds of pictures of the baby elephants I told myself to stop taking pictures of elephants, but then I found these two one taking a bath anf again I took another hundrer pictures (at least!!)

    Thanks!! I try my best, I know that my Spanish friends will be a bit lazy to read in English and not all the non-Spanish can speak Spanish, so I write in both languages 🙂
