Several hippos in various degrees of submergence - bet you did not spot the fourth one (totally below). I can never look at at or think about hippos without remembering a song on a child's story record that was supposed to teach children to be tolerant. It was about a strange creature called a "churkengoose" that was born or hatched looking totally different from all other animals and was ridiculed and rejected for that reason. The creature eventually performs a heroic act and is accepted (why should that be necessary), but during its time as an outcast it sings a sad song with the memorable line: "Are the hippopotami any prettier than I? It depends on how you look at things." Better than the line that the Cowardly Lion sings about hippos.
Good shooting - that ear on the right is waving at us

Good midday to you. Pardon while I stretch the nighttime kinks out of my vertebrae.

If I were cropped that close by my barber, no one could see a hair on my head.

I'll post this handsome fellow over here, too, if you don't mind. I'm sure he exists in colours further back in the thread.

Definitely don't mind. He is looking intently at something in a northerly direction. Norway perhaps

Actually, he was looking more in the direction of Jo'burg. Might be he was hungry?

(He was looking at another big male, probably his brother, walking on the far side of the road. They were having a grumbling conversation.)
