These young ellies were locked in an epic battle of “shove-of-war” testing their strength as they played back and forth.
They stopped for a brief moment, gave each other the gentlest touches of affection and then continued to scrummage back and forth.
Water really has a way of bringing out their playful side.
I love the simplicity of this image, the symmetry and the affection. Black and white simplifies this further.
The saying really should be, “as happy as an elephant in water”.
