"Ellie Antics" in the KNP

Unread post by Jesscan1 » Mon Feb 29, 2016 6:32 pm

I have decided to start a new thread called “Ellie Antics” to allow ‘mites to post their photos of Ellies doing the stuff that Ellies do and that we all find so entertaining.
So please feel free to post your pics of Ellies doing interesting things.

Little Elephant having fun!

What a great idea Jesscan :dance:

Beautiful photos of an ellie family and their interaction. :clap:

I will just wait for the page to turn....I posted a whole lot and realised it would be over the limit.

I too think this is a great idea, thanks Jesscan. I really miss the old elephant thread where pics used to be posted of all sorts of ellies doing all sorts of things, with the odd interesting question or discussion.

This fellow gave a shake of his head as if to say “Out of my way” as he swaggered across the road in front of us.
