This photo was taken from a safari vehicle in Kruger National Park, South Africa. The Black Rhino (Diceros bicornis) came amazingly close but soon after this photo started to show agression as she had a young one close by.

    Great close-up capture of this beautiful animal Graem & Margaret. They are so primitive looking, arent they? Great work here.

  • Fascinating creatures – thank you.

    Goodness, look at the lovely torn ears! This mama must have been around for a while, always defending her young… :-)

  • You’re probably right. She obviously felt we were intruding into her world and put on an angry display and mock charge.
