Beautiful communion with orphaned elephant

This photo of Daphne Sheldrick, author of Love, Life, and Elephants: An African Love Story, and African elephant Olmec was taken in 1989. When the one-month-old elephant rescued at a national park in Kenya in 1987, Olmec was extremely weak and suffering from solar burn. However, the elephant returned to wild after recovering health thanks to the protection by the David Sheldrick Wild Animal Trust.
