Water is one of the world's most essential elements -- and not just for humans, as this collection of images by photographer Greg du Toit proves. He spent months hiding by the lakes, rivers, and water holes of Africa to capture close-ups of wildlife quenching their thirst with the country's water supply -- and the stunning images are an important reminder that we're not the only ones who rely on H20.
