I agree with Mrsbass's comments, Herman: but totally at rest here and not offering anything in the way of a challenge, other than to capture them in fine detail and tones, as you have done.

Morning Herman, sorry to hear today is the last day in paradise...days fly by when you are having fun....2 great images of the hippo...did you know they get a form of skin cancer from the sun. Big pink blotches appear on their skin. I know the feeling of having so many photos so little space...why do you think it took me 20 days to share my wildlife and i still have hundreds...are we not so blessed to have all this in Africa. Enjoy your last dayGrinGrinGrin
