This was the Tranquil water hole we arrived at when the elephant came down to drink...then the hyena arrived and decoded to have a noisy swim breaking the tranquil moment...hence the angry hippo ...
Many thanks for your votes and comments and to all who awarded me their user awards, much appreciated
Have a great day

Mud, mud, glorius mud,
Nothing quite like it for cooling the blood.
Follow me follow down to the hollow,
Then let us wallow in glorius Mud.

Seeing the Hippo’s made me think of this chorus to a song that was well played on the radio
in Britain many years ago. Funny how things stick in your memory.
Thanks Colleen for all your lovely captures and this one for jogging the old brain cells....WinkWinkWink

A very welcome sight for all the very thirsty animals and birds, Colleen, but quiet and peaceful when you arrived Smile
You definitely capture the serenity of this waterhole. Beautiful.

Beautifully peaceful - hard to imagine that peace shattered so soon afterwards.
Hope you're feeling better.
