Photos Taken by Elephant

View at Daily Mail.

A camera is attached to an elephant's trunk to capture those amazing jungle views.

Downer said he came up with the idea three years ago when his team started filming the tigers.

He noticed how gently the forest elephants carried firewood to their camp and wondered if they'd be as delicate with a camera.

"And they were," he enthused. "Elephants do not see tigers as a threat, and tigers are comfortable with elephants. So we had the perfect team."

Along the way, images of other animals were captured by chance - or when the otherwise camera-shy creatures investigated the equipment.
