The Catch of the Day

My guests had seen all of the big 5 and we were looking for one more special sighting. We decided to go and look so we drove around for a while. We were lucky enough to find hippos out of the water, sleeping on the bank of a dam (or as I like to say, catching a tan). As we were watching the hippos, all of a sudden down, came a fish eagle and snatched a fish out of the water. It flew to the nearest tree to eat the catch of the day. What an incredible sighting – something I will never forget!
