I don't understand the behavior, but I love when they do it. They take a dust bath! It's so funny to watch. Wish I could have gotten a better vantage point, but elephant butt it is!

Topaz spicify, and topaz vibrance.

What fantastic texture! I love the expression on the background elephant - pure bliss.

That is an amazing shot! The impression of the dust on the elephant's skin leaves such an incredible pattern! Very nice... :O)

Great capture, Kelli! I think they take dust baths to get rid of the flies. Simply amazing detail and not a bad butt to boot! ;-)

I like big butts and I cannot lie...:-) sorry, that's the first thing that came to mind, LOL! Yup, wonderful textures throughout!

I like how the guy on the left is slightly leaning to the right. TERRIFIC textures.
