Goodbye my friend: Photo captures the rare and heart-wrenching moment an elephant bids farewell to her fallen companion.
John Chaney, 63, took this image of a female elephant performing a standing vigil by the carcass of her dead friend
The female elephant can be seen holding on to the tusk of the dead male with her trunk
She had to scare off surrounding vultures and hyenas to get to the body in a wildlife park in Botswana
All those who witnessed the emotional scene during a tour of the wildlife park in Africa were brought to tears
