Description: These two hippos seemed to be holding the crossing to a certain point on the bank by their presence just like school zone crossing monitors.

Story from behind the lens: We waited as the numbers of animals built up forcing the crossing. The presence of the hippos in the water was a plus in contrast and drama.
