Photographer captures 'extraordinary scene' as elephants mourn deceased friend in Tanzania

A herd of elephants appeared to mourn their deceased friend by nudging and resting their trunks of the body in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania.

Vultures watched over the animal, who died of unknown causes, and two lions were in the grass nearby as the line of elephants marched up to investigate.

The travel photographer commented that witnessing the moment, captured in March 2018, was "a very moving experience."
