A great rib-scratch tree!
Louis: The bark is scratched smooth to a height that suggest that some big elephants also use the tree.
Very sweet!! I bet it was great to watch!
Louis: Thanks Elizabeth. I like to observe elephants in the wild.

I knew: scratching ... -yes, now he feels quite better.
Louis: They have to scratch hard, because of the extra thick skins.

That looks mighty comforting, Louis
Louis: A good scratch and a mud pack, keeps an elephant happy, Lisl.
Oh the bliss of reaching the bit that itches!
Louis: Absolute bliss, Bill.
They would be capable of knocking over a few trees doing that. Great shot, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Mary, that could happen.
Great shot, and we all know what it's like to give an itch a really good scratching.
Louis: Thank you Brian, that is true.

Hahaha... that's an awesome capture. I'm so enjoying your elephant pix.

Great shot, Louis!
Louis: Thank you Tom.
Dang! That's a whole lotta scratching!
Louis: A big area and a thick skin, requires xtra attention smile
