Snorting hippo

I had set out in the afternoon looking for a hippo, as that is the time they wake up. When they do (eventually) wake up, they often give quite a display - and I was lucky that this individual was on form. He yawned and grunted for a good few minutes, giving me this shot of him breaching the water and snorting.

Location: Greater Kruger Park, South Africa
