A couple of weeks ago we've featured a fantastic set of giraffe photographs, and people really liked it. Nature is fulfilled with lovely animals, so I thought it would be a nice idea to take a look at the Earth's gentle giants, the elephants!

Elephants are really intelligent beings, full of emotion and with a great memory. They love their offspring, mourn their dead and cry when mistreated. How not to be touch by these marvelous beings? So I've selected some amazing, heartwarming photographs featuring elephants and I hope you enjoy my selection. These were taken my talented photographers and for more of their work simply click each image! They'll definitely appreciate your visit. Also, if you got your own photos with elephants, share them with us! Cheers! ;)
