Elephants taking a mud bath in Botswana

On the first day of our African safari in Botswana, we came across this herd of elephants in Khumaga, near Makgadigadi pan. Our guide let us watch until one of the elephants assumed an aggressive stance towards us - our guide then told us to get down, and we drove out of there and left them alone.

 

Technical information: Filmed with a mediocre handheld MiniDV Camcorder, then postprocessed with the fantastic Virtualdub filter "Deshaker" to stabilize it.
