[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
White Rhino
Same color as yesterday's Black Rhino but wide (not white) mouth and lips, very useful for grazers. White Rhino is larger with noticeably larger head and quite obvious bump over the shoulder. The head often very low over the grass in contrast to Black Rhino with strait held head and browsing leaves .

Hello Tom
Remarkable capture of those smart beasts. We clearly can see their enormous size when compared with the Springbok in the foreground. Surely the perspective is dramatically squashed when a monstrous 500mm lens is used, but still the comparison is pretty accurate! Bravo, ...superb capture Tom indeed!
