This is a superb picture of the rhino.
Absolutely superb work from an elephants back which I guess must be a very bumpy ride.
Lovely exposure and framing.

Thanks for posting this; it reminds me of a similar encounter I had in the same place, possibly even atop the same elephant, some years ago. Except that you have got a really good shot of the Rhino that we never came close to getting.
The focus is really sharp on the face and the colours are very natural. You've even captured a tick bird into the bargain. Well done. Thanks.

Hi james, what a great way to photograph a Rhino! I was nervous on your behalf before I read your note. Such a great closuep and I like the tight frame, it adds impact. Beauiful Rhino and the light works well, great detail, exposure and sharpness. I was in Nepal and the National Park was on my itenary, however I didn't make it to the park as I enjoyed the Himalayas so much I lingered. I am always hoping I will get the chance to go back sometime. Great work.

Beautiful shot of this animal. DoF is spot on. Very nice composition. Considering you were on elephant back it is excellent all around.

Your adventures amaze me! WOW!
Love that you took this from the back of an elephant. That is awesome!
Great shot! You really stir my imagination with your travels.
I'm not positive about this , but I think a Rhino is not an animal I'ld like to be surprised by! But again I'm thinking they aren't one that can tip toe up behind you either!!
I like the grasses around him/her what a curious looking creature! TFS

What a cute little rhino.
The eye contact is wonderful.
Well focused with sharp details.
The colours are natural and well saturated.
What a wonderful encounter.

Hi James and sorry for the delay...my internet was down :(
What a unique shot!!! A splendid animal but a rare sight, but reading your note i couldn't help smiling when i heard you took it from an elephant's back :)
Indeed that high grass can be very tricky in getting a clear shot of any subject, but you really managed a super job here and took it well, sharp and in a splendid light.
I actually like the look of that grass here...it gives the scene a natural feel and integrates part of the habitat in the frame.
Bravo and TFS

Congratulations on being featured today. They chose a nice image for their destination feature. It must have been a bit of a challenge from the back of an elephant. Hopefully the elephant was still. A nice sharp portrait, good colour and compositon. Interesting note too.
