[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After an absence of a while herewith I will try to upload again regular.
Last year I visited for the 4th time Paul Krugerpark and it was the best untill now. I was overthere with my son.
On our way to Satara we crossed a bridge and we could see a rhino very close by after a while it went under the bridge to the other side of the road and went bathing, because it was very warm.
I hope you like it.

Thanks for looking

Hello Vivian! Wonderful pet. It is Yours? Sorry. Wonderful shot. Excellent scene. Fantastic effect. Good luck!

Hallo Vivian,
I was wondering when we will see your share of the photographic moments of the Kruger park, and here is the first lying and enjoying the cool water. I like the relaxed moment you have captured and I just love the little ox-pecker also showing its face. Detail of this huge mammals skin is displayed well and one can even the pinkish colour of the wound on the forehead with great clarity. The texture of the loose skin in the neck and above the paws is also well seen. I hope when we visit this year we will have just as great photographic opportunities as this one and the one’s Paul have shown as so far.
Have a lovely weekend, and my best regards.

  • Great
