Your Daily Elephant

A continuing series of photographs.  I’m often asked, “how close do you get to elephants?”  Well, sometimes this close.  That’s my seat-mate’s hand in the lower corner.  This is the Chobe River area of Chobe National Park, Botswana.  Lovely grasses and rushes for the elephants to eat.
