Much More Than Meets the Eye #WW

Check out the lone hippopotamus we saw at the San Francisco Zoo this past weekend. He even got out of the water to walk around – it was fascinating! Doesn’t he just draw you in and make you wonder what he’s thinking?

  1. I don’t trust him…..

  2. I think he’s cute…..from a distance.

  3. He just wants to stay cool in late summer! He’s a great big water baby.

  4. Pretty photo!

    • Thank you. I was really surprised at the details around his eyes. I’ve never really looked that closely at hippos in real life, for obvious reasons of course.

  5. Great picture!! I love it.

  6. Yes, he does draw me in! I would love to see one of these in person! So cool that you were able to experience this.

  7. This is such a great shot! Hippos are my daughter’s favorite!
