Sunset with Hippopotamus

Sunset on the Okavango River with a yawning hippopotamus. The yawn is a threat gesture, and we witnessed a lot of it before everything quieted down with the hippos. Hippopotamus skin is very sensitive to the strong sun and so they spend much of their day in the cooler water.
