A great way to illustrate the uneasy tolerance between these species, Morkel. If the rhino was just a calf it might be a different tale.

Awesome composition - Clear and Crisp FG with an engaging BG makes for quite the photo story - well done!

Love the implied tension with the male lions keeping a careful eye on that Rhino. Good story telling Morkel.

The rhino looks so unconcerned! Excellent story telling here. Got to wonder what the lions were contemplating. :)
