Water Hole Crowd

Water Hole Crowd

About 50 bull Elephants are waiting to get a drink, but the water-hole was almost dry. They had been waiting patiently for some time for those at the water to finish and leave, but after a while, tempers flared, resulting in some pushing & shoving between very thirsty bulls.The loud clashing of the tusks & the forces produced by these behemoths struggling against one another, was impressive. When we returned the next morning, the ground was strewn with pieces of ivory--broken tusks. [Savuti, Chobe NP,Botswana]. [
