I would have loved to watch that show! It's been a long time since I've seen an elephant in the wild. I remember my time in East Africa and it's an unforgettable experience to see those wild animals in their natural habitat. It must be healthy for your spirit to have this be a part of your daily life.

Miss Footloose - yes it really is soul food - which is why its so imperative to protect our natural world. Elephants can make your day for sure!

Val said...

well we did feel a bit voyeuristic - that mud bath looked so enticing we nearly moved in once the ele had left!

What a fantastic series of shots. I would have been thrilled to see that. Thanks for showing us these pictures.

Lorac said...

Really enjoyed seeing this. He? She? couldn't tell. Really seemed to love this mud bath!

Angela said...

I would have joined, too. Looks so lovely. Thanks for your pictures, Val!

Amanda said...

wow - this is incredible. if you run through the fotos quickly it has a time-stop animated feel to it like a movie!

oh someday, i would love to see this up close and personal~ such a beautiful sight, val.

Pics definitely speak louder than words!!

Love the first pic

Val said...

Lorac - it was a bull elephant - they get more personal space; a cow elephant would have had to share and it could have been crowded!

I try to imagine the weight bearing strength of those legs in the fourth pic.

so glad you enjoyed as much as i did

nothing is more attractive than a well cared for elephant skin..and after the mud bath on to the next step.. trunk massage and nail care while eating a healthy tree salade. Hmmmm what do I have a hard live in the bush..
