I Dare You ! ..

By rogerfry
Late in the afternoon, we were lucky to have this large rhino cross the road directly in front of us. After having a good look at us, he plodded slowly across an open clearing, and then turned round and went back the other way, giving us a good view of him from both sides.

In V1, the scrapes along his side almost make it appear that you can see two rhinos, one behind the other! The other shots clearly show the marks, which he presumably got pushing his way through the bushes.

An added bonus was the light, with the setting sun on the trees.

I love these, and they're not as easy to take as it looks. Although this chap wasn't moving quickly, by the time I had got into a suitable position to take a shot, he had moved into the undergrowth.
