African bush elephant (Loxodonta africana) bathes in a seasonal wetland, Okavango Delta, Botswana<br />

Set up very close to the water’s edge, we photographed this “teenage” elephant. It was probably was about 10 years old and completely wet from drinking and splashing about in the small, marsh pool. It flapped its ears at us to warn us away, but it was nothing serious. Young elephants will often do a mock threat display, which definitely makes the shot more interesting. <br />
