15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
An Itchy Black Rhino

This has to be one of my favorite wildlife shots. The sun was starting to set on our safari trip in Zimbabwe, when we got radioed in from another guide that there was a black rhino spotting. We drove over there as fast as we could to see this little baby rhino and its mother. This little guy was feeling a bit itchy and decided to itch/pose himself perfectly on this log with the sun behind him. I just happened to be in the right place at just the perfect time for this one.
