Black Rhino

The Black Rhino charged and then stopped in front of this double-trunked tree behind which I had retreated. I took advantage of the rhino's very poor eye-sight, and stood perfectly still, so that I would appear to him as part of the tree. Note the dust thrown up by his approach. I kept taking pictures, moving only my shutter-finger. After a few minutes, he snorted and retreated about 100 ft. I remained still, because I knew that he would take one last look--which he did--before disappearing into the brush. [Matopos NP, Zimbabwe]
