Banana Flower

Most Americans know what bananas look like.

Most would not recognize a banana flower.
The bananas and their flowers grow on these trees.

Bananas have big, beautiful flowers!

Elephant Orphanage, Nairobi

 Feeding time for the orphans.
They get fed a special formula. It took a while for them to get the right mix for the babies. But they finally got it right.
They get to play in the mud holes.
It takes years before the youngsters are adopted by a new family of elephants.

Slippery fun for the youngsters.  Many of the spectators get speckled and splattered with flying mud.

They also get to have some greens with their meal.

To touch and be touched.
