“When you look away from the sun, everything else is illuminated.”
– Derek DelGaudio, In and Of Itself
We just wanted to share a pure, honest moment of life at sanctuary. Here, Mara and Bambi had come to the barn for dinner and a check-up and were on their way back into the habitat. The two elephants’ silhouettes come together and, for a brief few seconds, the sun disappears; you see only the shape of their bodies, walking. Sometimes the silly things they do are fun to share, but it’s the quiet, everyday moments like this that show what sanctuary truly is. They are simply at home.
