Dublin Zoo is celebrating the birth of a female Asian elephant calf. Proud mum Bernhardine (Dina) who is the herd’s matriarch, gave birth to the healthy calf on Monday night after a 22-month gestation period. The calf is estimated to be 1 metre tall and weighs approx. 80kg. The new arrival is Dina’s third calf and the fifth elephant calf born at Dublin Zoo in less than three years.

Woke up to this bland (irish) day – two weeks ago  in Easkey, Sligo. Anyways liked the tree, the wind. Thought the branch’s at the top  looked like horse’s heads.  So wiped this up yesterday. Adding daft, slightly surreal elements. After Effects & Mocha, then scoured youtube looking for things to chop up. There’s a whole world of “animals mating. That dog – i shot on Bray waterfront – where i lived.  liked its bored expression – just waiting – looking slightly morose
