Sharing moments in time…

Aircraft Carrier Africa Style


We visited a small lake that had several different kinds of birds as well as numerous Hippos and Crocodiles.  I thought this one caught the kind of variety show theme that the place had – a great blue heron landing on a Hippo and, if you look closely behind the heron, a crocodile lurking in the background.  Quite a reality show.

  2. I agree with Jennifer – the photo moves you along with the bird. And the hippo is a nice surprise as a landing point. Have you submitted to Nat Geo yet? They have reader galleries too!
