Got An Itch?

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Stephanie Swenseid

During a safari trip in the Mara, we came across this adorable younger elephant who had a scratch he just had to itch. From the looks of it, the tree he chose appeared to be a good one as it was bent in a way that curved to the elephants body as if the pair of them had met many times before. What captured my attention in this photo was that up close, the skin on the elephant looks just like the bark on the tree.

Location: Masai Mara Reserve, Kenya
