Our path is blocked. The Oxpecker which enjoys a symbiotic relationship with the rhino can by eating ticks on the hide of the rhino can be seen on the spine of the rhino on the right.

Well seen photo and story of the sharp end of these rhino. One definitely does not argue about the right of way with these guys.
The image and your camera settings suggest that the weather was overcast. I prefer shooting with plenty sunlight to get an aperture of F8 and a speed of at least the inverse of 1.6 times the focal length of the lens. This gives more depth of field and reduces the possibility of camera shake as I do not have image stabalisation.
You're lucky these fellows aren't their charging 'black' counterparts.
What kind of reserve is Hluhluwe-Umfolozi compared to Kruger in terms of size and wildlife?
