Thank you for the great response to my little critter and to Kathrynlouise for her UA, all much appreciated.
We saw quite a few white rhino on this trip and a few youngsters as well which is great news. White rhino has a wide mouth and mainly feed on grasses. They have two horns and grow to 1.8m and weigh over 2 tons. White rhino tend to live in groups. They use their horns for self defence and attacking predators. White rhino groups stand in a circle facing outwards to form a barricade with calves near the centre.
Rhino communicate using a wide variety of sounds, including grunts, growls,snorts, squeaks and bellows. because of their hump, white rhinos cannot swim.
Their lifespan is 34-40 years
Have a nice day...

Posted By alistairfarrugia : Converted to Grayscale in Photoshop and then dodged/burned different areas to achieve the desired effect, namely:
1. More contrast between the highlights/shadow areas on the rhino to bring out the texture on its skin...
2. Creating a "leading line" with the highlight on the grassless ground bottom left of the image in the direction of the rhino
3. Muting the effect of the bright green grass behind the rhino by burning it in to make it darker whilst still retain its contrasty feel against the rhino's skin.
