Another for you Ten. +3. Love that shot!

Now I have some wildlife in my backyard. Normal what some people always see but I like shooting nonetheless. The first are two Eurasian Collared Doves:



And a lone shot of same kind of Dove:


And last a shot of my backyard and what frequents it:

Not quite sure but I think it was a pigeon.

I stumbled upon a watering hole that moose seem to frequent.

Looking at that first rhino, I assume/hope you used a fairly long lens. Nice set!

Thanks Dadipentak. 50-200mm lens. This is a white rhino, or square lipped Rhino, a reference to it grazing habits. Usually docile, it will usually move away from human presence, and cars etc. Very few records exist of it charging motorists, and most of those have involved calves present. It is its more temperamental cousin-the black rhino- (or hooked lip rhino- that being a reference to is browsing habits), that would be of concern to me. It charges for no apparent reason, sometimes stopping just short of its intended target. Not that I would take a chance. The black Rhino is also smaller than the white Rhino.
i have many times been very close to the white Rhino, without fear. The most memorable being in Pilansberg Game Reserve, where I parked at a dam, enjoying lunch, when one of these-and which I had not seen, came right next to the car. I could have touched its horn it easily. When it got the smell of me (Rhino's are known for their poor eyesight BTW) it gave a hearty snort and trotted off into the distance.
As seen in the first photo, they will usually just stare at cars/people for long period of time, eventually turning their attention to something else.
