I actually live just down the drag from the reserve but never really get down to going there!
I like the tight composition, POV, Sharpness and detail of the subject. The Lighting is the great.
What are the photographic opportunities like for animals and birds (hides etc) at Rietvlei?

Excellent portrait shot, nicely framed and fantastic detail. There is a feeling of tension with this shot, as he has one eye on you and it seems unsure what he will do. Good natural lighting, great work.

Excellent portrait of this Rhino, It must have been quite an experience to be so close to such a beast. I like the way you have captured the detail in the animals skin.

Hi Jan Hendrik,
Excellent rhino portrait. Sharp with good DOF and details. Nice light. And dirty, muddy skin adds a lot.
