When I was in southern Africa, I took pictures of many creatures but one was missing from my list: the black rhino. Since moving to Kenya, I have seen these magnificent and threatened animals in 5 different parks and managed to get close on number of occasions. Early one morning in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, I came across this one. I stopped the car straight away and it stayed there for about 5 minutes, sniffing the air, trying to figure out what the car was, giving me plenty of opportunities to take pictures.
