You´d better run ;)

You´d better run ;)
We saw this group of Elephants in the Okavango Delte, Botswana, arriving from far.
Our guide was sure they wanted to stop on that small riverine and I wanted to have some group shots.
The herd were 7 elephants and one small calf. Elephants with small calves are sometimes a bit nervous and tend to mock charge to defend the baby.
We´ve often been mock charged by elephants, normally you just stay put and the elephant will calm, but this time our guide expected a bit more than just a mock charge as he pulled down the throttle and quickly drove away. Maybe it was just Full Moon ;)
