Elephant dust shower.

This large bull left the trough without having a water shower but as it was walking away, it had a very cleansing dust shower. I was just in time to get this shot before it moved in behind the trees. This one was a perfect throw. In terms of dust throwing, it will have a good chance for a medal ... in London!!

The position of the trunk makes it appear as if he did not throw that soil but I can assure you it was not a small dust cloud that fell from the sky!!

Just look at the stones flying away!!!
