Fearsome Hippo Baby by LinRuPhotography Fearsome Hippo Baby by LinRuPhotography
I spent two days at the Ruighoek dam in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, South Africa, capturing the amazing interaction between two hippo calves and their mothers. This is one of my favourite images of the trip.

You can view more images of this joyous family on MY BLOG.
