Photographer's Note

Third in the series on the elephants in the Pinnewala elephant orphanage.

The Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka is located about 30 kms from Kandy. This orphanage houses about 80 elephants of all ages from really cute and inquisitive babies to mature and aging pachyderms. There is an entry fee for visiting this place and for some "tips" one can actually feed the elephants some milk and also help them with their daily bath. This particular photo was shot during when the elephants were in the river for their bath.
One of the most over rated experiences is lunch in one of the places by the river that pride themselves on their mediocre spread and even worse service while being privy to the elephants bath. Just walking up to the river and watching the elephants antics in the water would probably have been an enriching experience by itself.
