Hi Jagdeep :slight_smile:

My first thought was how these two reminded me of a wedding toast between bride and groom where they intertwine their arms with a glass of champagne, the difference here is these two are giving the other one their drink as opposed to drinking from their own glass.

Anyway, I digress, I’m always intrigued by how social these gentle giants are.

It’s a wonderful capture showing their social behavior.
Very well presented, Jagdeep :slight_smile:

Wonderful and touching! It makes me feel that these creatures are so much more socially advanced than most people would realize. The light has given a softness that is appropriate!
