Elemental Elephant

Elephants are my definite favorite animal. To see them in South Africa was a marvel and a privilege. You could imagine my awe when, while spending a day and night in the bush, we'd come across this lone bull dusting himself - as if he were the absolute ruler of the bush, with an import and majesty unmatched. In what seemed like a moment that lasted forever, we soaked in this magnificent creature; funnily enough, to him, it's just routine.
