Oumie, lovely pics from Sanset dam :clap:

Poor little hippo making way for the giraffe. :D :D :D

The bird life always a pleasure to enjoy and then there are the 'submarines'..... :lol: reminding me of my dentist who got as her business logo a crocodile face with open mouth and healthy looking teeth... :D :D :D

Thank you for sharing. :thumbs_up:
