This is one of my wife's favourite hippo photos I also like the arty minimalistic feel here V2 - another one of them lazing amongst the reeds .
I am overwhelmed by the response to the Pearly yesterday !! Thank you so much for your votes and comments and for the much appreciated UA's from:
George, Malcolm, Darryl, Steve, Nathan, Carol, Bill and Moira.
Have a wonderful day - I have to visit the vampire lady again to give another blood sample as they neglected to test the fasting glucose level in my blood last time
