Description

***full view required*** (wild animal) Great moment again here... This is a capture I was looking for when I was thinking about the Botswana before my trip.
This is a big male hippo who were trying to intimidate us (And he succeed to for sure).
He was moving really fast in the river closed to us with the mouth entirely opened! (you can see the wave that was preceding him).

I hope you'll like the picture as much as I do.
Comments and critiques are very welcome.

Thank you in advance for the support and feedbacks.

That hippo is definitely watching you - scary stuff!  They are amazingly powerful animals.  What a great chance to see one in the wild.
I love all the detail of his skin texture, too.
