[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The third and final image in the series of this elephant's bath room antics. A bit of make up to look nice for the ladies.
After being in the water a layer of dust is used as a bit of a barier against ticks and other parasites. Dust was thrown over the whole body usinfg that versatile trunk while we watched.

Hi Robin,

Superb capture of this african giant. Very nice PoV and ultraclear image. Nice to see the dusting of these fellows. Great work.


Nice action capture of the elephant taking a dust bath. Well seen and well presented Robin... TFS.
