Your Daily Elephant

A continuing photographic series on the daily lives of elephants.  Samburu elephants gain their distinctive color from the reddish mud of the Ewaso Nyiro River and the region’s soil they dust over their bodies.  I originally tinkered with this photograph in black and white, but the elephant to the far left disappeared into the background.
