Looks like another winner to me! Fantastic pov with superb detail..and I agree with Jeffrey - you DO have this magical way of finding the best poses, angles, light and color - not to mention, DETAIL in all your captures of our animal friends! Excellent work!

My goodness, Kathy - I missed this one!!! Although with my spotty participation of late I should not be so surprised...Marvelous, fabulous and fantastic - a truly amazing capture and probably the best hippo composition I have ever seen. Love this pose and how he fills the frame, and the detail is exquisite! I expect to see this with a big gold badge next!

SUPER CONGRATULATIONS on a spectacular month, my friend! Like Val, I was routing for 3 Winners, but I guess 1 out of 3 ain't bad! This was my favorite...Am very thrilled to see it with GOLD. I bet it has lots of promotional potential, too!
