21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Rhino baby lips

Location – Mokala nature reserve, Northern Cape, South Africa (because it is a rhino maybe we can just put “Somewhere in South Africa) The image was taken during a game drive in the park in South Africa. A mother rhino and her baby were standing next to the road. She was feeding on some grass next to the road and was very relaxed. She allowed me to drive very close to her and her calf. The calf was running around her and at one stage the calf came to drink some milk and I capture just image just before the calf started to drink.
