Canada Black Rhino..Harmless

By tonyguitar
Our Black Rhino is a bug and as far as I know, totally harmless. His horn is not really sharp at all. That's OK. We have the Wolverine. No one messes with him.

Yes a saddle for lilliputians. Y'know, Gulliver's little people.

I forgot to mention above that this fellow just folded and tucked his wings away but he forgot to tuck in the tail assembly. It was a cold breeze so that may have made him sluggish. TG

Harmless but handsome and very impressive.
Your low POV has helped to make him look even bigger

Armour-plated, looks fearsome enough, but then that's the idea isn't it. Nicely captured, Tony.

Super macro image Tony.
PS, the Gull was taken at 1/2500sec, not 1/250sec.
