Description: This young male rhino was alone in this area and quite an unexpected sight. He had distinct ear notches and markings that were known to the protection teams when we sent a picture to them.

Story from behind the lens: As soon as the rhino was sighted there was great excitement in the vehicle. Calls were made to the rangers with the location and description of the rhino. We remained there until they arrived to begin surveillance of the rhino. That made for ample opportunity for photos albeit at a distance as to not frighten him. One more amazing story from the Mara.
