Absolutely beautiful shot. The contrast between the rhino's gray tones and the surrounding green is perfect. Like a natural frame.

Very nice side profile shot of this incredible looking rhino. I guessing that is the white rhino since it is grazing in the green grass instead of browsing like the black rhino with it's prehensile lip. TFS. :)

Yes, I agree with you, this certainly is a beautiful animal. We South-Africans are fortunate to have such a variety of lovely animals in our parks, and especially Kruger Park. You have managed to capture this Rhino at a good and open spot. The green grass is a proof of all the rain we encountered when we where there in October 2007. Looking at the animal I can see evidence that it had a mud bath not so long ago. The mud clots still clinging to the skin and on its horn. A great close up of this massive animal. Thanks for sharing. I relived some wonderful memories of our holiday.

Hello Viv good sharp detail and I like the pov, the light was well positioned to give contrast in the skin. tfs rgds Necip
Simply excellent picture of the fine animal. I think it is outstanding. Great is all. First of all it is 3D-image effect. It is terrific. Transparency of the shot and clearness of the pleasant colours are superb. Composition of the shot is brilliant. My congratulations. Perfect job. Bravo.

This is a beauty!
I am amazed at how close you are to this lovely creature.
I guess the luggage was lost and found for a reason,so you could record this beast.
The focus is sharp and the detail and textures are wonderful.

Good Rhino image, Viv.
I experienced these big guys in Kruger as so relaxed....
