Water Hole Crowd

Elephant Bulls waiting to drink: These are just some of the bulls waiting so patiently for a drink. The water supply here looked pretty skimpy to me, knowing that each thirsty bull could consume almost 100 gallons. Later that evening, the man in charge of these waterholes explained that he had deliberately ordered all the water shut off to encourage the elephants to trek another 10 miles or so to reach the plentiful water of the delta. I don't know if this worked, but I thought it was a little cruel. [Savuti, Botswana].
