Description: A hippo family relaxes in the Mara River in the evening sun and it seems, the one in the middle smiles satisfied.

Story from behind the lens: We stayed that night at the Fig Tree Camp as I decided to take a walk around before dinner. Directly in front of the camp I found this hippo family relaxing from the day in the Talek River. I realised I had my camera in the tent and ran back hoping they haven't moved when I return. Back to the spot they haven't moved at all and the one in the middle still had the smile. They really must have had enjoyed it.
