Roy Mangersnes - Hippos in the evening


I just came back from Botswana, leading a group of photographers to the Okavango and Chobe NP. We had a great time with some amazing encounters. Still the Hippos are one of my favorite animals to work with in Africa. There is something magical about laying on the ground next to a hippo-pool in the morning, or evening light, never knowing what will happen. Perhaps a bird walks by, or the Hippos decide to come closer. All at the same time I am completely aware that I might have to run any minute, as the Hippo can be rather grumpy.

Location: Okavango, Botswana
