Life and Death

(with sincere apologies if this offends anyone)
I have been experiencing 'safari photo' fatigue and needed to show something that you probably haven't seen from someone's brilliant trip to Africa.  I am rotten at photgraphing animals unless they are very small or very dead.  This unfortunate creature clearly falls in the 'very dead' category.  

The nile cabbage is providing cover for several of Hippo's cousins (just out of the frame) and also is hiding several of the pond's more ravenous residents...a bunch of crocs were making attempts at an afternoon snack but the poor thing was so bloated they couldn't even get a taste.
