This was taken on foot !! there were two adult Rhino's and a calf. Our guards assured us it was safe !!
They were correct in one way, to see them in the wild was a privilage indeed !!!! But I was full of trepidation ( nearest tree came to mind ) My last upload for some days, the Lakes are calling Smile

Looks like a few tons of aggro focussed on you.......guess you have to trust the guards in a scenario like this.
But it allowed an excellent head on shot showing the size and bulk of the animal.

Great capture of this endangered species !! They are killing them at a rate of more than one a day in South Africa alone.

Even at the 400mm end of the lens I find this far too close for comfort, you must have trusted the guide Ron.


Have a good trip to the lakes Ron.

Well done on that, Ron! Trepidation's a good word, I think I'd have some of that too.

Great angle on this image and really shows how powerful the rhino can be if faced head-on! I like the way they can twirl their ears around to nearby sounds.
