What an amazingly lovely sighting! We've seen many ellies but as far as I can remember never at LP, I can imagine that your camera has doing some serious overtime 8)
The little one is sooooo cute :D
Thanks a lot for sharing Jan!
I am sure there will be more lovely, special moments you are going to share with us.
