While I was busy shooting these two rhino, my son says there's something running on our left. We rush up the path, cut a left and suddenly these two run onto the track:

Great shots! I absolutely love the last shot with him looking directly into the lens. :)

Hi great shots! Better practice is to not post the park or location in which rhino shots were taken and to eliminate any GPS data. Most wildlife photographers do this so as not to give the poachers any information at all.

We also follow that in Kenya, but these are at Nairobi National Park which is well known as a half-way house for reintroducing rhino back in the wild.

Unfortunately, we also have poaching here:

No GPS data at all in these shots.

Very nice captures. Never saw any rhinos when I was there. I really, really hope they survive the poachers.

Cool captures on all three. Would love to see something like that in the wild someday.
