This is a rather close up of Ares...
he was on heat and not a happy boy, so ''grabbed'' what I could

V2 a little more of him
Hand held and taken at WHF in Kent

Just could not resist this handsome face, full of woe

Thank you all so much, what a reception to the cub

special thanks go to Steve, Val, John, Bob, Sue, Netta and Ju

Despite what you say, these images are quite superb, Lillian, and the detail in it's fur could not be better. Nice to see the fuller picture at V 2 but that close-up inspection in V 1 is really top notch in every aspect. Wonderful photography yet again.

Two incredibly detailed images of this gorgeous hippopotamus Lillian. Image number two works for me, as I like to see what is going to eat me before I have a chance to walk away calmly.

V1 shows a sadness. He's given up the dream of going back to the wild and now only has daydreams about it. As shown in his far away gaze. V2 he's coming back to reality and maybe waiting for dinner. Love them both, with V1 just a touch more........Sandy

What an excellent close-up portrait in V1! Wonderful detail, Lillian, and yeah, he does look doleful, doesn't he? Sad

V2 wins it for me, though, 'cos of the angle and light.
