    Reported by:

    Towards the end of the year last minute my friend Ty asked me if I wanted to go on assignment to Tanzania and capture wildlife. We ended up in some isolated area in Tanzania where we came upon a small body of water. As we approached closer my eyes couldn't believe the surprise that was in front of us. I knew in that instant moment I need to capture this once in a lifetime experience.

    This is an incredible perspective of this hoard of hippos! Great work filling the frame past the edges of the photo with hippos moving every which way. I agree with Leila that I love how the orange ears contrast against the colors of the mud and water in the frame. I love it.
