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/

Picture Rajan snorkelling by Jeff Yonover (United States of America) ‘Swimming under water with such a massive land animal was unforgettable. This Asian elephant is called Rajan, caught as a youngster for the Indian Andaman Islands logging trade – now banned. It takes a daily dip with a handler. I captured the moment it ducked its huge head under water, using its trunk as a snorkel.’ An elephant’s trunk is an elongated nose, but it uses it for much more than breathing. It can pick leaves from trees and grass from the ground. It can use it to put water in its mouth and to greet other elephants. A trunk can also signal to enemies, and grip sticks so the elephant can scratch its skin. Nikon D2X + Nikon 10.5 fisheye lens; 1/100 sec at f10; Subal ND2 housing.
