African Elephant Eye

An African elephant, glistening with water, emerges from the Chobe River in Botswana. The elephant herds swim across the river to feed on the numerous islands where lush grasses grow and en-route, they will cavort and play with one another in the deep waters. They often swim across with just the tips of their trunks sticking above the water like snorkels.
