17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Nature's Mosquito Net

On safari in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy the Rhinos can be found on bare hill tops. They settle in for a nap but every once in awhile they give a great heave of breath which causes a cloud of dust. The dust acts as a natural fly/mosquito net for this mother and baby.
