A Beautifully Decorated Elephant.

This photo was taken at the Amer Fort in Rajasthan, India. I captured these beautiful elephants as they were walking through the primary courtyard. I particularly love the detail you see in the natural dots on the elephant, contrasting with the painted patterns. I've always thought of elephants as simply grey, so it was interesting to observe this unique breed up close.
