This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Migration Photos

An elephant group is on the move in Samburu National Park in Kenya. African elephants migrate in search of water sources during the annual dry season. The elephants of Mali make the longest known elephant migration, advancing 300 miles (482 kilometers) through the arid Sahel during their annual circuit.
