HUNGRY HIPPO MISSES OUT ON LUNCH
A hungry hippo is seconds away from catching a bird in its gigantic jaws. The hippo, half-submerged in a lake, spots the egret sitting on a branch in the water, but the lucky bird flies out of sight and off the lunch menu. British photographer David Driver captured the shot in Lake Mburo in Uganda, Africa. The 57-year-old, of Oakworth, West Yorkshire, says: ‘The egret managed to escape moments before the hippo got to him, and so the disappointed beast sank back under the water, clearly unimpressed!’.
