Very pictorial scenery and so beautiful "lady" (if I am not mistaken). Simply great widest DOF You use so small aperture value very seldom. This case is for that apertures. Amazing lighting, colours and details. Skin reproduction is wonderful too. Bravo and best regards.

I love the composition. The image is sharp, and the composition is stunning. I get to see the full body of this female, getting a sense of how large she is. Magnificent!

Despite your omnious writings, this finely captured specimen looks cuddly and cute Annick, but I must admit that I never saw a live specimen in wilderness yet...

Lovely exposure - the detail is excellent. Well seen and captured.
Hello Annick, excellent shot of this hippo. The light was perfect, very sharp indeed. You could see all the skin textures. Good eye contact, nice close composition, technically v. well done. I like the light and the angle of the shadow to the animal. tfs Rgds Necip
Hi Annick, Fine shot of this hippo. Love the sharp detail and lighting. Tfs and hope you have a wonderful weekend. Richard
Once again, perfect shot of the whole body of a hippo. Great details on its skin texture. I didn't have a chance to get this close to one to get a good shot of them and they won't come out of the water. I like the very rich tone and color of this one.

thank you for this little cuttie!
I have never the skin of hippos was so "goose-like". Although, I spent an hour watching it quite closely at San Diego Zoo.
Hippos are just lovely. Just look at this smile!
Unfortunately, they have different from their relatives - whales- temper.. I experienced that in Ethiopia with a big male...
Great work as always

This is a wonderful sharp image Annick. You captured all the disproportionate beauty of this gal/guy. There is something so amusing and endearing about them with that big mouth, tiny ears and little eyes. Nice work.
Evelynn : )
Very good photo with sharp details
Nice light and colors
PS: You gave me an idea and I will post one of my hippopotamus' interesting photo tomorow

Hippos are not very beautiful mammals as for me, but this picture shows a very nice and beauty individual. I am really surprised that it is so... clear! No mudd or similar "things" on its body are visible, what is rather common in this species seen in the wild. Perfect DOF and sharpness, and thanks to them this is a one of the best photo of hippo I have seen on TN :)
Best greetings from Lodz,
