Weekend Reflections -Hippo Happiness



There is a reflection here (someone's feet at the bottom), but the main objective is to show you the cutest little hippo ever.  Mom and baby were "taking a snooze" as we strolled by the exhibit at the San Diego Zoo.  The baby hippo would stick his nose above water for a second, go back under the water, close his eyes, and be back asleep.  Could I have found a more precious picture?  I don't think so!!!!


Whether wild or tame
There's no love like a mother's
That's the way it is

I don't usually think "cute" with hippos, but babies are babies and babies are cute...

sweet photos. I didn't even notice the feet until you mentioned them.
