Description: A rare sighting of a black rhino running in the high grass in the savannah in Mara.

Story from behind the lens: I am pleased to submit this picture during the 'World Rhino Day' month. After about an hour of watching this magnificent animal in the open savannah of the Mara National Park with early morning golden light on the animal and the yellow grass, the rhino decided to run for the bushes nearby. I was lucky and took the opportunity to go for a panning shot with a low shutter speed. It was challenging to capture the rhino which was zig zagging through the high grass and uneven terrain. The high grass frequently covered most of the rhino.
