    Ek het oor die naweek ‘n video gesien van ‘n olifantkoei wat geboorte gee. Jinne, ERG morsig, maar laat mens net besef hoe wonderlik die natuur is. Die kleintjie het nie asem gehaal nie, en die koei het hom so paar keer geskop (wat vir my onstellend was), en op ‘n stadium het sy haar slurp om sy slurpie gekrul om sy kop op te lig, en hy het begin asemhaal! En toe moes die baba op, sy het gedruk en gestoot en die kleintjie het erg gekla, maar hy is op die einde op om sy eerste paar treΓ« te gee. Nodeloos om te sΓͺ het ek my oΓ« weer uitgehuil, want dit was so mooi.

    Pragtige foto’s!

        Ek het eers gedink dis sommer gemeen van die ma! Maar as jy luister na wat die man sΓͺ, verduidelik hy dat die ma angstig is dat die kalfie(?) moet opstaan en loop, want hoe langer hy lΓͺ hoe meer kwesbaar is hy.

        Die natuur (en ‘n ma se liefde) is darem wonderlik!

      From time to time we do hear snippets on our traffic reports of elephant herds on the highways in the north-east of the country, Maciek! Comical as it is, it is rather dangerous for people and elephants when that happens and they are normally swiftly chased back to the game reserve with helicopters and people making noise on foot.

        Of course, roads and animals don’t work well together. BiaΕ‚owieΕΌa Forest which I have recently written about saw a wolf killed by a car, just a few days after we left. Such a sad story…
