“The hippo did get a little perturbed by us and did some thrashing around with a bit of a grunting show, which sent the little croc sliding into the water.

“But the crocodile clearly didn’t mind as it just climbed right back up onto the crocodile’s back again and the hippo didn’t seem to mind in the slightest.

“When I saw my images I was exhilarated. It is a really unusual sighting, and I knew I had captured something pretty special when I went through the shots.”
