Photo of the Day (5.15.2010)

I look at this photo and I think, “yes, please.” Not only would I like to be witnessing this scene, I also want to splash around in some muddy water on a hot day like this. Don’t these elephants look all slick and refreshed? Adametrnl took this photo at the Pinewala Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka, where, he says, the elephants are taken to the river twice a day to bathe and cool off.

Do you have any photos that might inspire us to roll around in the mud? Post them to Gadling’s Flickr pool and we might select it for our Photo of the Day feature!
