This late afternoon Game drive lead us to this most unusual scene of a young Rhino and this huge Cape Buffalo, just to the left was Mommy Rhino looking on with great interest, the baby Rhino was actually teasing the Buffalo and showing off knowing Mum would help out if any altercation should arise,
I previously posted Moms image on the 29/9/2011.

Hello Paul,
Exceptional scene you got here. A meeting between old and young too. Very beautiful light and colours in this photo. Taken from a perfect POV.

Very unusual picture, though I think you could have lightened it up and still kept the afternoon atmosphere

Unusual & excepcional scene, very well done!

Hi Paul.
You managed to catch an amazing scene. I like warm brownish colour palette, superb details of the FG and both animals. Smoothness of the BG is also pleasant. Only level of exposure seems like disputable a little bit. Happy New Year and many nice shots here.
