Last resort

I came across this hippo hiding in the last mud pool of what is normally a full watering hole. It had been a very long dry season, and with no immediate signs of the expected rains, this hippo was doing his best to stay covered by the mud to protect his skin.

Location: Pilanesburg National Park, South Africa
