When I saw your name I knew I was about to see some top quality work, and I did. It would be hard to choose a favorite from this fine series but if pressed I'd have to go with the hippo.

Looks like they were all posing just for you! Good composition and good shooting... very sharp and clear. Not a bad way to spend a day, is it?? *LOL* Excellent shots! And I'd agree - the hippo is my fav... :)

The hippos was such a surprise they are never out or in a position to be photgraphed so I was thrilled when I saw them in the pool thanks for looking
