Mama Rhino

This image is beautiful to me because of the mimicking nature of the young rhino and the strength of his mother over him. We were driving along the road when we heard running and came up to this clearing where there were 4 rhinos running around. The babies were running after each other. We sat there with our engine off observing them and watching the babies try to be like their mothers. These animals are so beautiful, and the sad part is they are being poached for their horns. These rhinos are the reason I cannot say the exact game reserve I was in because of the slight chance that someone can see where these rhinos are and poach them. These people kill them for something that they grow back like a finger nail. They don't need to be killed and yet they're being slaughtered. This bond between mom and son is beautiful to me and I was glad I was able to experience this relationship up close.
