Very nice image Nico. The baby is very cute, especially at this age, but beware, Mommy is over protective and better you stay away from them. Nice post Well done

Fantastic photo.

It's allway nice to get a good look at them... I've just posted a bunch of them at the mara river in Kenya.
Good picture as well, I like ther shiny skin.

Good shot, but it would have been better with another POV.

Hi Nico
Nice Mom 'n baby shot, the low POV here works for me. I would crop it off on the rightm just there behind the wrinkle - plooi - on her shoulder, this wil change the compo and have more impact on your viewers!

Nico, your hippo shots are making me jealous. This is one of our big ones that I have not been able to get a good moment of. The shot here with the you is great and I like the composition.

Well done and thanks for posting

It has a very high "cute-factor" .. I posted something similar with kangaroos.. well done
