The bathing elephant

I made many photos of elephants and I love their skin, but it is not easy to show the beauty of the skin in photos. Most elephants I have encountered in my trips to Africa were either dry, or having a mud bath. This one was having a bath in the Chobe river in Botswana. His skin was wet and clean. The texture of his skin is coming out beautifully.
