Dust bath


Group of elephants enjoying a dust bath at Rooidam, at the Addo Elephant National Park. I do not know what the appeal is, but they were certainly enjoying themselves.

Great shot! Would love to experience in my lifetime, for now, I just enjoy vicariously!

Brilliant shot!

It may be their way of cleansing themselves and get rid of those little buggers hitching a free ride.
Chickens do that too.

Great photo, specially with the dust hanging in the air.

They sure are kicking up some dust, aren't they? On a smaller scale this reminds me of my cat who loves to lay down and take a gravel bath. Wonderful shot. Have a nice day.
