Interesantan tekst o Nilskom konju sa opisom ...
Lep pogled na niske konje u zoovrtu ...
Dobar snimak i kontrast, lepo pokazan deo zoloskog vrta i lepa devojka u pozadini.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

A nice portrait of these slumbering beasts, the woman in the distance looks small and goes well to emphasize the size of these creatures. Though they are not my favorite animal, the ones you captured here look more photogenic than the ones I normally see, there is nice color in their faces.
Thanks as always

Most dangerous animal in Africa, Miguel.
Most common opinion think that it is a vegeterian, though not being as lethal - but it is.
A bit too far from subject, yet we can appreciate it's size.

Unos animales imponentes, que aqui se ven muy tranqulos, bonito fondo con esa arboleda tan abundante.
Buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.

HI Gueguen, Nice capture of these animals in an original composition. I like the forest BG and the fence also provides nice pattern to the composition. Very nice light and tones. Thank for sharing

They look docile here but apparently they kill more people than crocodiles in Africa and are fiercely territorial. Good sharpness and realistic colour. I might have cropped some of the top to exclude the wooden awning protruding at right. Tfs!
