    Rajan - one of the last the swimming elephants in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, #India

  • Ela Saunders

    Rajan, the 60-year-old Asian elephant in Jeff’s winning picture, was rescued from the banned Andaman Islands logging trade. Today he takes daily swims in the ocean with his handler and Jeff was privileged to join them in the water for a dip. When asked about his experience Jeff said: “Swimming under water with such a massive land animal was one of those unforgettable life experiences“ http://www.roadlesstravelled.com.au/australian-museum-wildlife-photographer-of-the-year-review/

    The Natural History Museum will display some of the best images from its Wildlife Photographer of the Year archives in its summer exhibition, Wild Planet. This Asian elephant was taking a dip with a handler when US photographer Jeff Yonover captured the moment it ducked its huge head under water and used its trunk as a snorkel!

Elephants love reunions. They recognize one another after years and years of separation and greet each other with wild, boisterous joy. There's bellowing and trumpeting, ear flapping and rubbing. Trunks entwine.

The time spent, wasted, but I still choose to move on. Wise beyond my years and your expectations of me. It's time for me to use the knowledge that I've acquired, my memory, to look forward to the future and brighten my days. I'll never forget the magnificence of what a good change can do for someone.

Aww, elephants are lovely. Those fences shouldn't be in her way begin with.

Is this elephant still alive or has she been killed for her ivory? If she is dead, where is the little baby? Stop elephant poaching.

one day I am going to ride an elephant and it's gonna be fantastic.

I have always wondered how to feel the elephant's hide with more than my eye...the touch of the ages, the rock earth, the wisdom of the intelligence of the beauty!
