Really well done!

Wow.... What a camouflage :o)) Very well framed and seen. Wonderful colors, splendid and a funny composition. I like the bird on his head :o) Good focus and sharpness.
Did you combine 2 shots, or is it just one?

As a birdwatcher I do like this photo very much. I mean the hippo is great but wahta about the african Jacana on the left. And there is a oxpecker on hippo's head fighting with another bird i don't know.
Great shot and TFS.

What a stunning photo. The sharpness of the entire photo is excellent. I like the pose you've captured and the birds that are fighting for the best spot. Great colors and exposure.

Very nice green hippo shot with beautiful surroundings. Usually they are just relaxing in their own ...Well composed and jackana is good bonus here.

rather over the top saturation and on the edge of being a pastiche but i love them and you have the nicest shot i have seen of one in river weed and with the birds on them.
they kept us awake at night in kenya as they stomped around the cabin gardens..
