A Little Hippo Lovin' :)
We were so lucky when we were in St. Lucia, as we were able to see many of the hippos in the estuary play fighting. This older hippo (back) was playing with a youngster (front), teaching it valuable lessons on fighting techniques and building reflexes (plus, it's fun!). They took a break from their antics to shoot this sweet look in the direction of the camera.
