Gentle Giants: Elephant Encounter II

The sheer power and grace of elephants is difficult to convey.  When they come in from the bush to drink water, and roll around in the mud, they absolutely dominate the scene, and other animals wait patiently until they’ve had their fill.

It’s easy to just sit and watch these creatures interact with each other and their environment.  Watching one chase off a jackal and flap its enormous ears; another patiently nursing a calf; and their odd habit of “scratching” one leg against the back of the other, one gets lost in time.  I tried to pack the most interesting scenes in 2 1/2 minutes.
