Big boys beach

While in Botswana, we had a great opportunity to watch about a hundred elephants in action on the river bank. They arrived from the savannah in groups, took a little dip and played in the water. Then, coming out, they covered themselves with white clay powder on the shore (foreground). After a while, the animals headed back to the water to wash clean and repeat the procedure.
Botswanas olles avanes meil suurepärane võimalus jälgida sajakonna elevandi tegutsemist jõekaldal. Gruppide kaupa saabusid nad savannist, tegid väikse supluse, hullasid ja mängisid vees. Seejärel välja tulles määrisid nad kaldal end üleni kokku valge savipulbriga (esiplaanil). Mõne aja pärast suundusid loomad uuesti vette, et end puhtaks pesta ja protseduuri korrata.
