The Hippo Pool at the north end of Lake Manyara, Tanzania. The birds in the background are Egyptian Geese (Alopochen aegyptiacus), a species of duck common along the banks of Lake Manyara. The big male in the foreground is the dominant bull along this stretch of lakefront. I counted about 20 other hippos that appeared to be females in his harem.
