By Mother's Side I took this photo while doing my field studies in Tarangire National Park. My fellow students and I were observing the activity patterns of elephants in the park. This was our last group of the day and, as they left, I captured this mother and juvenile walking alongside one another.

  1. Thanks for sharing this photo. Note that in JungleDragon, members are asked to include basic details as part of the photo, therefore please consider the following tip(s):

    - Please give your photo a meaningful title and description. You can do so using the "Edit details" button below the photo. It is recommended to include basics like the name of the species and the location in the title.

    - You did not share any location info. You are asked to at least share the country in which the photo was taken, since this helps in identifying the species. You can set the country using the "Set country" button. Even better is to geotag the photo, which you can do using the "Geotag this photo" button.

    - You did not identify the species on the photo. To identify the species, use the "Identify species" button. If you do not know the exact species, please share what you do know such as the location and family of species so that others can assist in exact species identification.

    Note that by sharing your photo with more complete details, it will show up in the species browser, the global wildlife map and in search. It helps people find your photo much better, plus it delivers a far more educational photo. Check out our photo sharing tutorial for more information:

    1. Hi fchristant,

      thank you for the update. All of my photos have titles, species, name, locations, and descriptions that go along with them. I posted these photos while I did not have enough time to fill in all of the info about them. I did not realize there was a time limit to fill in the description and was planning on doing so this evening. I was surprised to see an immediate demotion as well. I am a college student and thought this forum to be a very open space. I figured that as fellow photographers you would understand the restraints of describing a piece you personally connected to.

      Again, I appreciate your feedback and apologize for the delay. Hopefully we can avoid this dilemma in the future and you enjoy the photos.

      Thanks!
      Eric

      1. Eric, you have taken the above comment perhaps a bit too literal. It is a standard message to anyone not filling in the basics for a photo.

        Technically, there is no time limit in editing these details, but normally people expect you to do it as part of uploading the photo, or soon after. The reason for this is that moderators constantly process new photos, and if your photos lack these details, they will have to do a lot of detective work. We often come across people "dumping" photos and unfortunately we cannot read your mind as to when you will edit them.

        Anyways, you clearly have the right intentions, so sorry if the process came across as harsh. For sure you will find this to be a great and open place for people passionate about nature. In fact, once you see why species and location are so important on the site, and the powerful features it enables, I think you will support us in this.

        Note that I did not demote you. I removed the dog photo (which really is off-topic), which means you lost the karma you initially earned with it, and as a result that demoted you. This is an automated process, and the recalculation was correct. It's not a personal decision or attack, I was merely doing my job.

        Let's make the next steps more positive, and feel free to ask away about the process. We love to have you on board :)

The African bush elephant is the larger of the two species of African elephant. Both it and the African forest elephant have usually been classified as a single species, known simply as the African elephant, but recent evidence has seen the forest elephant classified as a distinct species . Some authorities still consider the currently available evidence as insufficient for splitting African elephants into two species.
