In a couple of weeks I'll be leaving for Zambia again for the annual workshop there. A good time to have a second look at the results from my previous visits: what are the best locations, where can we expect to see the most action, etc. This one was taken two years ago.

When I spotted this location a day earlier, it was frontlit and the background was horribly distracting. I decided to return the next day at a time that the background would be in the shade and spend some time with a local raft of hippos. After an hour or so, they had become used to my presence and that's when these two youngsters started chasing each other, which was a lot of fun to watch.

Shot in Lower Zambezi NP, Zambia.
