Reading deponti's post about Thattekad made me go back to my archives and revisit that fascinating place. Thattekad is south India's top birding destination and doesn't usually have elephants in attendance, but during my February 2006 trip, there were a herd (or two) of elephants in the park. From the safety of a building inside the forest, we watched these magnificent creatures in the river...

An elephant tests (and tastes) the waters first...

... and the rest of them jump in to have a splash in the hot afternoon sun.

Wow, and you were actually there. You have and are leading an interesting life.

Great photos. I would love to see elephants in the "wild".
