In the spirit of icanhover’s sunset photo last night, this morning I bring you sunrise on a beach in St. Lucia, South Africa taken Sept. 10. There’s also the pod of hippos I spent time getting to know that morning: I was sat on the board walk by the estuary, just me and them making funny noises (the noises were just them). It was great to watch the baby basically annoying all of the adults who were trying to rest after a busy night out grazing in town.
Quiet, intimate moments with wildlife like that are so rare and something to treasure. It was incredibly peaceful.
