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.

Brave. Worth it.

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.

Are you saying you are more scary than your hedgehogs? when did you shave last time?

seriously, this is a great capture, and yes, I would have like to be not too far from the Land Rover !!

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.
