Elephant giving mouse leg up

The young elephant raises his leg to check up on a white mouse put there by his playful keeper to demonstrate to visitors that elephants are not scared of mice as some people think. John Drysdale grew up in East Africa acquiring an early interest in both photography and animals. He trained at Guildford School of Art and has worked in photo-reportage, advertising and won numerous awards. But perhaps his most memorable work has been in the field of humour, working with children and animals in real life situations.
