Photographer Pathum Bandara said: ‘Baby elephants are very playful, and whilst I was observing a heard of over 200 elephants I spotted these two messing around.

‘The little elephant looked like he was trying to steal a free ride as he rested on another! He looks so mischievous as he looked in my direction.’

Mr Bandara, 34, added: ‘To get a shot that is so clean as this, looking straight at them, is why I’m honoured to have taken the picture.’

The playful baby bull leaned on his stronger, weary-looking friend for as long as he could before finally being pushed off
