    Was not going to comment on anything today but saw this an could not help myself.
AWESOME would consider a deal w/the Devil to do a trip like yours and get these type of shots.
These are an animal I would certainly give a VERY WIDE
Path and only shoot with a LONG LENS.
Would enjoy know the specifics behind this one if you have some time to drop a note.

Thanks,Jack. Lake Naivasha, somewhere between Nakuru and Masai mara is a very scenic lake to take a country boat ride and watch the Fish Eagles and Seagulls trying to beat each other in going for the fish thrown by the boatman which was the main attraction of our trip. Presence of the Hippos in large numbers brought a different perspective to the experience.

Love all the blue color surrounding that big ol' open mouth, Ujjwal! Too funny! One of your more memorable posts from your African safari adventure.
