hello sir,
Lovely picture.great moment of capture

Hello Annick
This is a stunning capture..Perfect choice of f7.1 to keep mother and young sharp and totally in the focal plane..I love the way Mum has her eye on you and I guess she must be very protective of her pride and joy.
Perfect understanding of your equipment resulting in an image of the highest quality.
Best Regards

Hi Annick,

How wonderful to see the mother and baby together. They are both so sharp they look like statues. I love the eyes, the wrinkles, and the way the child looks so proud while walking. Exceptional colors of the animals and the setting.

Hi Annick,
This shot of the charging mummy and baby looks splendid and i love th eway you have managed to get botht the subjects in frame and at this PoV is simply superb. Perhpas the mum was making its junior cross the path keeping its own body as cover whilst she sensed movement across the field. I like her attentive look towards the camera eatablishing eye contact whilst the young one makes its way across.These kind of shots are really fream for most out here and here you are presenting these fabulous captures to delight us.
Thanks for sharing this...into my favourites.

Wonderful shot!
We really can see how big and dangerous is this animal. Great detail, nice framing

Superb double portrait, Annick.
It is not possible to miss such sharp details on animals that size.
Great capture from an effective POV.

hello Annick

very beautiful image of these Rhinoceros, with fine POV and DOF,
in the same time great luminosity of the image, excellent density
of the colours and lovely softness of the composition,
and great sharpness and details of the subjects,
i love the calf's foot movement, TFS

Hallo Annick,
Wat een schitterende kleuren in deze foto en alweer vanuit een wonderlijk laag standpunt genomen. Fantastische compositie. Grappig oogcontact (of niet). Scherp als altijd.


Now that's great work. Plain and simple. Outstanding capture, technically perfect. TFS!
