Elephant Bath




Earlier in the summer, before it got too hot for man or beast,
the Houston Zoo had a open house at the elephant barn.
Tess and her calf, Tupelo were the stars.

They love having their bath.

Little Tupelo was helping.

Tess was a very happy elephant!

Be sure to visit Camera Critters to see the other critters.

If you are on the east coast, please stay safe.

Wishing YOU well.

OOOOOOOOOh, I love your new background and header, it looks so lovely.

I love your elephant photographs. These are really wonderful. That Houston zoo is truly a wonderful place. So nice that they take such good care of the animals. Look at that last photo, that elephant is surely basking in the shower.

Hey, a great way to beat the heat. Those gals are too cute! Hope you're getting a little much needed rain and cooler temps out your way. We did get some rain, but back up in triple digits here.
Cute post this evening and I love the gals in the pics.....

Y'know our son has lived in Houston for nearly 20 years, and we still have yet to go to the zoo when we're there with him. Hmmmm.
