Good timing, or did he think I was a warden, about to
chuck in a cabbage or two?

Thanks Geodyne, i was equally suprised when he/she came over and gave me a good old look at those teeth, the same wow you get when a peacock graces you with a fan of feathers.

You want to watch him/her, he/she may have thought you were lunch. Hippos have been known to take limbs off if they don't like the look of you!

I can imagine it would have been a fabulous sight though.

It was, with it being a rainy weekday in dublin, we virtually had the zoo to ourselves.

This was shot from a 10ft high ledge overlooking the hippo's pool like you say, for very good reason - i can only imagine the biting power of jaws that big/heavy.

Lordy! And that tongue! Are you sure it was a yawn? It looks a teeny bit like a yearn to me ...... for that tasty limb lunch. Hope you counted your fingers and toes on leaving.

I forgot to say - what a marvellous shot. Puts my Pied Wagtail in the shade.

why thank you Javama :) - and don't put yourself down, I just got lucky, perhaps only because my head resembled a cabbage!
