Hippos throw up a fountain of spray while explosively exhalingCaption: Hippos throw up a fountain of spray while explosively exhaling, Lower Zambezi National Park, Zambia.

Camera: Canon EOS 50D; Lens Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM; Focal length 400mm; Shutter speed: 1/1600; Aperture: f/5.6; ISO 400.

The original image is in color, but because of the strong backlighting, I opted to convert to black and white using Adobe Lightroom 4 as this produces a much more dramatic effect. What to YOU think? All comments welcome.
