Water Crossing at the Mara River

Saw several river crossings, each one very dramatic. The second one in particular was exciting because there was an enormous crocodile in the water, taking out as many wildebeest and zebra as it could. The croc had to be around 12 feet long, if not longer. Two large hippos lounged in the water nearby. After watching the carnage for about as long as I could stand, I was a bit relieved to see on of the hippos swim over to the crocodile and angrily dress it down. Unfortunately, the hippo didn't stay in his self-appointed crossing guard post long enough and before long the croc was at it again. Here's a few photos, minus the carnage.
