Rhinoceros
The morning breeze calmed down just long enough to present this nice reflection of a rhinoceros cow with her calf, the fourth animal in my collection of Africa's "Big Five" that I photographed recently in South Africa's Thornybush Game Reserve.

Congrats on catching a rhino.  We hear so much lately on the significant increase in rhino poaching and this is one of the areas I contribute to for trying to save them as best possible.   Great reflection and well composed.  Sounds, and looks, like you had an incredible journey. 

I like the subtle striations of light on the momma rhino, from the rippling reflections in the water.
