This is Belle, who just turned one month old last Wednesday. She was born at the Ft. Worth Zoo on July 7th, and is the second elephant calf born at this particular zoo. Also, she loves swimming pools.

Allow me to caption Belle's thought processes through this entire experience:


The look on her face in the first picture is priceless. Elephants are such beautiful creatures - every time I see one I want to draw it. They have lovely lines.
