Almost as though they were in a square dance competition, these two hippos (Hippopotomus Amphibius) raised up from the Mara River waters in Kenya, Africa, and went neck to neck in what seemed like a classic barn dance move.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.
