Too close for comfort

Too close for comfort

There is a small group of rhino that are afforded 24 hour protection by rangers. This has accustomed them to humans so I was informed that I could get quite close. I lay down in the path of one with a wide-angle zoom lens set on its highest zoom. After a while I became aware that the rhino was filling the frame and I had pulled the zoom in as wide as it would go. I peered over the camera to find that the rhino was only 2 feet away from me so I thought it a good idea to move. I rolled over to the side and the huge beast walked by unconcerned by my presence. That was the last subject of my safari and was a perfect way to finish an incredible trip.
