Delightful capture of mother Hippo and child, the motherly contentment and the baby's 'smile' showing well in this fine composition. An additional bonus is the pair of Red-billed Oxpeckers on the mother's back.
TFS this image that is a joy to see!

This week time is critical; however...............................This is a very special and relaxed moment you have captured between this hippo and her youngster. One cannot believe that a small mammals like this little one can grow into such a huge and heavy piece of meat. Lovely display of their natural surrounding. Kind regards and thanks for sharing.

What an amazing shot, Vivian...
Nature at her best, is what I say when I see a mother-offspring shot!
Excellent frame chosen!

A true Nature shot! I had seen lots of HIppos in Africa but not a baby. How wonderful to see this one right near it's mother. It looks so small!! A wonderful photo with excellent details and natural colors. The natural habitat is marvelous.

De baby en de ossenpikker op de rug van het nijlpaard maken deze foto bijzonder. Erg mooi.

Splendido ritratto familiare, molto bella la composizione (personalmente avrei circoscritto maggiormente la scena tagliando una parte a sinistra), ottima nitidezza e belli i particolari con gli uccelli sul dorso, belli i colori (peccato che ci fosse poca luce). Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Tender scene superbly captured, what a sweetheart. Most wild Moms are very good Mothers and do what they feel necessary to protect their young.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful image Vivian.
