[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot taken at the Pretoria Zoological gardens. It was fairly hot, so most of the animals were quite lazy. This guy found this pond to be a nice motel for the day and only stuck his nose out every couple of minutes or so.

It took some effort to get close enough to be able to distinguish some detail on the skin. I think I came close enough, but maybe even a bit closer still next will make a big difference. Not to be tried in the wild though..

Ho Johan,
Neat with precises details. Good texture of the skin. A different POV. TFS.

Hi there!
Love the totally different idea you had with this one. The composition is spot-on and I think the inclusion of the little branch on the right adds rather than distracts.
Superb crisp colours and sharp detail too!
Well done!
