hitting the fan

Earlier this week I was out at the Western PlainsZoo,at Dubbo 400k north west of Sydney, doingsome drawing, came across the old hippoenclosure. He is sound asleep. Come back later.
Later, he is up and on land, I get close, about 10m away, he lets loose, and it is like the proverbial shit hits the fan! Wags his stumpy tail, dung flies everywhere, marking his territory. Staggers off for a wash in the pond.
What a sight!!

I thought I would put up a line drawing as well,  I prefer it actually.
