I shot the first Hippo picture from a (driving) car, this one, I took it from a boat...

P.S. yes, my dear Pirate from Spain, the safari virus is a contagious one...

Best regards, Paul

Hello Paul,
Impressive picture of this Hipo's face. Teeth are dangerous.We know every year how many people got hurt by this animal in South Africa.
Details are good with excellent sharpness and natural colour.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice day tomorrow,

Hallo Paul
When you captured this photo you where just and hour and a half drives away from where I stay. St Lucia is a very popular tourist attractions. This is certainly not your everyday shot, and you have been very fortunate to capture this huge animal from so closeby. A well composed action image, well done, and thanks for sharing. Best regards.
