Roy Mangersnes - Good morning Hippo

Roy Mangersnes - Good morning Hippo

I have really fallen in love with African wildlife, and the African light. I believe this image showing a Hippo at sunrise shows what I love about it. It is taken at a lagoon in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. I was laying on my belly near the waters edge, and the Hippos were getting rather curious about this strange creature in the mud. As they came closer I could get my shot. Instead of including the actual sunrise I was focusing on the nice reflections in the vegetation in front of me, and the colors of the water.

Location: Okavango, Botswana
