Although I usually like to see a single shot posted, in this case, the series makes perfect sense; it starts with tranquility and builds up to incredible drama! The focussed attention on that increasingly widening mouth, with the extra detail of the turbulent water, really creates the atmosphere.
Was your heart rate up as you took these shots?
I would imagine so!
You are having one incredible holiday!

haha! Very funny fat fellow! Nice grouping Hans, a good way to show all shots of this guy! He seems mad...he he! Don't get too close, you would make a nice breakfast for him! Yes, wildlife pics are hard.

Great show of the this upset monster of the river. He does look a little upset. I like it. Maybe a training image for CNN reporters. HEHEHE

HI Hans, a very well composed collage with top photos.

I love wildlife shots, and this sequence is great. I usually prefer single postings too, but a collage is very appropriate for the action here. A scarey and dangerous predicament that you captured very well. And according to the Christmas song (I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas), they're supposed to be vegetarians. Who would have thought???

Hi Han, I like to see wild life nature photos and heard Hippos cause more harm to humans more than any other animals each year, unsure if you had heard that during your trip? I like the sequence and the colours are very realistic. A very good series to show how seeing wildlife live rather than the normal way on a TV documentary. Glad you survived this action encounter.
