We often talk about how much Lady enjoys the grass in Yard 5, and this is just one example of how much she takes pleasure in her walks and her grazing. This was later in the day, after dinner and Lady was down by the pond, in a very spunky mood.
Lady is cleverly trying to pull the leaves from this particular type of grass because she prefers the tops with the seeds on them. During the rainy season, when you have an abundance of grass around you, there’s no reason not to pick the choicest pieces for your snack – and that’s what she’s taking the time to do. It’s just another moment where the bounty of sanctuary seems simple, but is so important to the daily lives of the elephants who live here.
