[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
In the national park of Masai Mara, the white rhinoceroses are jealously protected by the rangers.
To avoid their massacre by poachers, they are locked up the night in a park and are slackened at dawn.
The white rhinoceros is the second larger mammal terrestrial after the elephant. It can weigh more than 3500 kg. It is short-sighted, but it has an excellent hearing.
Of peaceful nature, it can be approximate until a distance of safety of approximately 20 meters. But it is necessary to be extremely vigilant, because it could charge without informing if he feels in danger.
This specimen formed part of a small group feeding quietly in savanna.
The photo one was taken with a teleobjective of 135mm associated a lapping machine of focal distance. It then was contrasted, croped and the colors were saturated.
I hope that you will appreciate and I await your comments.

Hello Jean-Patric!
What a superb framing photo! Great subject showed very, very well!
You are living in great place and have many great subjects to make photos. And you do it excellent!

Hello Jean Patrick

Isn't the White Rhino endangered? Why would anyone want to hunt and kill these majestic animals. Nice work. I love the framing. Thanks.

Bonjour Jean Patrick,

I think you've got an eye for good compositions. All of your kenya shots have a nice and balanced composition. I hope I will be able to learn something of it.
