Great shot with nice details
good composition and lovely naturel colours
thanks greeting lou
Day by day their number moving down.I think such crime should be stopped declaring DEATH PUNISHMENT to the poachers and South African Government should take such drastic step as early as possible.Otherwise those days are not far,when Rhino's will be History.
Few days ago we saw a pathetic scene in KNP.After poaching horns a poor Rhino was roaming about and suffering from pain.Still this Rhino's picture without horns floating infront of my eyes.Atlast those poor Rhino got relief from his pain,after department shot him....
Wish a new law will be formed to protect them.
Excellent picture of this Rhino with splendid details and sharpness.Good work.
SORRY I SPEND ALL MY GREEN SMILYS!
Thanks for sharing,

I don't know if I have ever viewed this magnificent animal up close like this before, the detail is incredible. To be totally honest I can't remember seeing a Rhino in my entire life outside of photos and movies.
I remember as a young boy we would occasionally have a circus come to our town. They usually had elephants, lions and once in the while a tiger, but never a Rhino. I suppose I will just have to enjoy images such as yours for now. I would love to someday visit your beautiful country, perhaps on a Mission trip. We have some home grown missionaries in Tanzania who I would like to visit sometime in the future.
I have watched documentaries on the National Geographic Channel about the terrible plight of these beautiful animals. I pray that something concrete can be done to stop the poaching before they totally disappear from their natural habitat. Great shot Anna!!
PS. I noticed that this specimen has what looks like notches in it's ear, is this a way for Governmental Law Enforcement Personnel to identify a particular rhino?

The photo was shot in a difficult harsh light, but the important of this post
is your message to protect and save this great animal, the visual look that
has this Rhinoceros with you, means everything and in the danger they are
and it is time to act to protect them, TFS your photo.

A wonderful close-up of this giant of a Rhino, Anna.
I fully support your concern for the survival of these denizens of planet earth we humans have almost decimated.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and your picture.

You create magic with your lens, Anna, not to forget the notes that you pen, which evoke pictures themselves.
THe POV you've chosen, albeit unusual, beautifully captures this endangered animal and specifically, brings to my notice the very reason they are poached..their horns...
Very sad that such beautiful creatures are being driven to extinction..
Thanks for the share!!

Hi Anna, Excellent shot of this Rhino with good light and details. The texture of his/her skin is so real that I can actually feel it by look at it. Wonderful shadow next to the animal with great composition. Best regards
