Rhinos are endangered species. You got a good close shot.

Rhea said...

The Fort Worth Zoo has nice viewing areas, and my camera has awesome zoom. Thanks!

Tammy said...

Great shot! I've never seen one in person.

Michele (Rocky Mtn.Girl) said...

Oh this is a great photo... you caught them well!!!

Kat said...

What an awesome shot! How are you liking that camera you got for your birthday? Have you played with elements much? I am still an idiot about Photoshop...but with the actions I have downloaded, I can fake it :-)

Shannon H. said...

Great shot! They look so relaxed in the shade.

Rhea said...

Thanks, everyone, for your nice comments!

Kat - I am lovin' my new camera, but I actually took these photos with my old camera about a year ago. :o) I still haven't messed with Elements much...I'm going to though, I promise!

They are sure interesting, aren't they. (BTW, I've never heard anyone call deer big rats.)

Jules said...

Another fun zoo photo. The happy couple, right?

Jules said...

Oh, I forgot to ask...... Just how close to these guys were you?

I live maybe 20 mins. from the Philadelphia Zoo and and hour and something from the one in Cape May. It's been toooo long since I visited either. Hopefully this summer we'll get in some day trips.
I love, love, love, your new display picture. Cool pink hat too.

Those are great images. They are endangered, which os such a shame.

Great photo of the big fellows. I need to get out there and see them. Maybe today? Nope too hot, and I need to rest up.
Come visit my critters,
Troy

Terrific shot of the Rhinos keeping cool in the shade :)

That's a great photo they are such interesting looking animals.I like rhino's tiny little eyes they look so misplaced on those oh so large bodies

Rhea said...

Britgal Sarah - Glad you like my new photo! I decided I need a photo of ME up for a while. lol The cowboy hat is new. I just got it.

David - I have a Canon Powershot S5, and it has 12X zoom. Can't afford a Digital SLR yet.

Katney - I've heard deer called rats here in Texas, because they're everywhere. I don't call them that though and I love them!

Thanks, everyone, for your nice comments!
