One of the rescued taking an exuberant bath in the river in chiang mai province in northwest thailand. Volunteers fill buckets and wade in to splash the elephants who await their daily anointing.
A group that has been led to the riverside for communal bathing. Some stay close to shore, others go farther out for their daily roll and frolic in the water.
Every day mahout pah tee puts a fresh flower into a hole in the earlobe of his 66-year-old charge, mae jan peng. An abusive former mahout created the hole so he could attach a rope to pull the elephant along.
