African Elephant taking a bath
Photographer: Andrea Popick
Location: Chobe National Park, Botswana, Africa
I watched this elephant swim across the river and lie down at the shore of an island. It looked like it was blowing bubbles as it blew water out of it's trunk. This was a special moment for me as I had never seen an elephant swim or take a "bath" before I went on this safari. I was delighted to capture it in a photo.
