Hippo Pond Sunset on the Serengeti

This is a pond full of hippos in the middle of the Serengeti. The sun is setting behind the acacia trees. The utter beauty of this moment is amusingly tempered by the obnoxious amount of snorting, burping, and farting going on in that pond. The cacophony definitely brought a smile and a laugh.
