Simple yet beautiful capture of the rhino (and the birds as plus) with great shallow depth of field and fantastic sharpness. Imagine this monster on full speed. :) Great choice of background, too. Bravo.
Best regards, László

Awesome shot Tom!!
I'm definitely glad we don't have these big fellows roaming the fields behind the house. The shear body mass of this guy is impressive alone, and you captured him wonderfully in fine detail.
The birds seem to be going along for a free ride in this shot. I can't imagine they would find any insects to eat on his muddy armor plated hide. Well done!!

A good shot of this great guy with the little ox-peckers on his back. If the next few images are anything like this, then I cannot wait to see them.
Well done and TFS

Hi TOm - I missed seeing it in Nakuru as I was told you hardly see them, you must be lucky. The capture is great and TFS.

Impressive animal, impressive capture!
Personally I'd be very careful when dealing with those guys hehehe...
Situation is well recorded, including the always present birds looking for insects!

Incredible capture of a rare rhino. This would be a prize for me to capture on an image. I envy all who gets to witness this amazing animal in the wild. Very nicely captured Tom. :)
