This is definitely something you don't see here in Ohio!! Great capture showing plenty of action as these youngsters enjoy a bit of tussle in the water. Focus is sharp and colors true and natural. I'll bet they made quite a splash and probably some noise too. Well done!!

This is fantastic!! I love the way the water splashes around them. Such clarity and sharpness of each drop. This is a fantastic come back! Never seen this before. Excellent.

What a pleasant and joyful image of these two frolicking in the water. That lens is really coming into its own here but no lens will ever make it without a photographer behind it. Very well done with having been there, having seen it and having been ready for it. Amazing activity in such sharpness. Very well done indeed. Best wishes.

A nice contribution for my theme "Juveniles". Thanks for sharing.
Do you have any clue about the age of these two? They do not appear to have yet the 'Killer Teeth".
I shudder to think how naive I was, after we came to South Africa , and I approached a herd of hippos to some 15 meters in the Okavango ...
In Hazyview they are rampant, and tourists walking in the evening to the restaurant get bitten in half...
Have a good week
