Destructive and landscapers of the African bush, Elephants play a vital part. As seen here tearing the tree apart and devouring the succulant parts, this behaviour increases in the dry season due to lack of water. The obsticle on the left is a Termite mound not Elephant crapWink

That is an impressive back side! And I like the interaction between the two, the flapping ears and the dust.
Great capture of those youngsters, I wouldn't like to get in between ...

Sadly the mighty Elephant is quite destructive in it's eating habits, but they don't know that, it's just what they were taught and handed down from when trees were everywhere in the African lands, before man started meddling.

A great image of elephants doing what they do in the wild. I can almost hear the noise of those branches ripping!
