SATURDAY CRITTERS - Rhino In Kruger Nationial Park

These Rhinoceros were photographed in Kruger National Park, South Africa and you can see from the second shot that they were quite a distance away and sleeping so these images are heavily cropped. 




Can you see what the difference is in these 2 images? (Above and below)





 I am linking this post with SATURDAY CRITTERS and hope you enjoyed it.

Many thanks for your visit and also to all who leave comments.

  1. Yes there is a goat in one and not in the other. The goat may be an antelope.

  14. Notice how one is hogging the shade. The other is keeping a cool head, but the rest is in the sun. I think Jo is right--- it's a springbok, right?

  17. Rhino's are magnificent animals and your photos are superb.

  18. Margaret, I'm not fooled. These aren't birds, and will never be able to fly. Good thing you were using a long lens as they can be unpredictable. I just hope they are well protected. A misconception has lead the species to the brink of extinction.

  19. What a cool thing to see! Good thing they were so far away - and that they were asleep.

  20. Awesome to see them, even from a distance!

  22. Such amazing beasts these are Margaret! and what a privilege to see these animals out in their natural environment!

  23. I think they are white rhino, but it's hard to tell? We have been involved in a Black Rhino conservation project in Zimbabwe for 25 years now, so I always appreciate seeing rhino in the wild, along with the Impala tiptoeing through behind! Great photos

  26. Margaret, what a great experience - photographing African animals.
    I spotted the Impala.
    I work with three South Africans and have been well schooled on the Antelope family.
    I would love to visit one day, it's a special place, like nowhere else.
    I don't like zoos and the thought of animals out of their natural environment.

  27. I love all these animals from around the world that you share with us! I'm certain it's best to see the rhinos from a distance.
