Capturing a surprise moment

My favorite part of experiencing Murchison Falls National Park is the boat ride up the Nile from the dock near Paraa Lodge to the Falls. Along with a variety of birds, views of elephants, wildebeest, antelope and other animals along the shore, hippos are everywhere in abundance. Capturing a shot of a hippo jumping out of the water in protest to our boat coming near was one of those rare photos ops - having the camera pointed in the right direction as the hippo jumped up, then splashed down and disappeared beneath the water.
