Great capture...
Must admit the rhinos just didn't appeal to me
What a daft idea!!!!!
I could understand if it was a patchwork elephant!!!!!
But that's just me.

The rhino is heading straight for the bait that appears to have loosened from the fishing line and is now in danger of being eaten alive...poor Moira!

Well,you reeled in Moira a few years back Bill,
so you must be looking for a fresh catch here !!
A bit disturbing it is a rhino you want though.
Although I still find it more preferable to a sheep !!

I'm wondering just how long you had to wait until the shadow was positioned just in the right place! Wink But there's always a bloomin' photographer gets in the way and spoils the shot!! Grin

Another colourful rhino, but with a difference. How clever of you to get the fisherman's shadow just right.
Excellent capture.. Hope he reeled it in..Wink
