Le sigues sacando el jugo a tu ¿hermoso? hipopotamo Cesar.
Excelente primer plano donde tu mascota está disfrutando de una máscara facial embellecedora.
Bravo!

WOW...what an awesome shot!!!! Excellent strong composition. This is a top rate photo.

Cesar, I would have to say this one definitely has "eye" appeal!! ;-) This is great..it creates an immediate response in the viewer to want to look again..and again! thanx for this "down & dirty" shot! Good note.

Extreme close-up, Cesar. He looks plastered.. :) A very unique and interesting post of this Hippo. Nice note too. TFS.

Very interesting and artistic shot,. I think is just great, the crop is perfect. thanks for sharing.
