Photo by @franslanting I played a game of hide-and-seek with this hippo floating in the Congo’s Garamba River near the Sudanese border. When he submerged, I moved closer; but when he surfaced with a snort--I held my breath. When you work with big animals up close, it’s important to know when to move and when to stay still. Follow me @FransLanting for more images of Africa’s wildlife.
