I like the composition. These big ones are always difficult to fit in the frame. The focus is very soft. Is that ticks on the side?

Riaan, A nice capture, pity you never got his whole head without the grass. Nevertheless, a good speciman.
Riaan, I like the title chosen, very fitting! Great write-up on this Rhino also.. I think a faster shutter-speed might've helped on this as your subject is in motion?? I don't remember now. Does that S5000 have shutter priority?? Thanx for posting.
Hi Riaan, good shot, nice compo, good colours, but as gerhardt said, soft focus, not that sharp.but maybe it has something to do with he big horn lol :o)

Buena captura Riaan de este animal nada fácil de retratar a corta distancia.
Buena perspectiva y encuadre, aunque coincido con otras críticas sobre el problema con el foco... y al pregunta de marhowie era atinada... un tiempo más corto hubiera permitido un foco más preciso seguramente.
Good capture Riaan of this animal complicated to portray to short distance.
Good perspective and frame, although I agree with other critics on the problem with the focus... and to the marhowie question a shorter time was accurate... had allowed a more precise focus surely.

Yes nice capture of this powerful beast. A little contrast boast would work wonders here. Excellent note.

I find rhinos to be very difficult to capture. One struggles to get good sharpness from them and then they are grey and seldom fit their lips above the grass. You pulled this one off quite well, and I like the composition.
Thanks for posting

The black Rhino is aometimes calle 3 tinnes of bad temper, luckily, these guys are more docile. Nice capture right =on. However, the f-stop, as discussed, is too "big", you nead f11 about in this case.
