I'm Bigger Than You Are

Species: Hippopotamus & Nile Crocodile | Location: Kruger Park, South Africa

We were on an early morning game drive and light was low. We saw a few smaller crocodiles on the shore of the pond. Suddenly a hippo came walking toward the water. I focused and waited to see what would happen when it reached the croc. The hippo and croc just looked at each other and the hippo continued on to the water. Taken in vicinity of Shingwedzi Camp.

About The Photographer

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
