|Hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius). More info on the Hippo here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippopotamus|
I took this picture just outside the Kruger Gate of the Kruger National Park, South Africa. The Sabie river forms a natural border for the park at this point.
Because we were outside the park and on top of a bridge we could get out of the car to take pictures.

Been at that spot as well and also had some super hippo action that time! Lovely catch, maybe a little too much greenery on the top, but that a nitpick. Well done

what a lovely capture, willem! :-)
excellent composition with mama and baby hippo for a walk on the land.
amazing to see how small the little one is and how big it will be once.
well seen & done, thorsten.

What a great shot of mother and child, and you was lucky to get out of the car.
I like it a lot.

Fantastic shot, Willem.
That baby hippo is adorable, and the juxtaposition of the wee one next to his huge mom is quite comical.
Sharp details and good exposure with excellent POV to compare the two.
TFS. : )
