White Rhino with Cattle Egrets, South Africa, September 2015

Everything came together at that moment and to me it represents what it means to be a wildlife photographer, getting out and being in the right place at the right time and having the knowledge and experience to capture that moment. The cattle egrets were following this southern white rhino as it grazed, looking for bugs to eat that are disturbed by the rhino walking. At this moment several flew in toward the back of the rhino and I love how it looks like it could be one egret in different stages of flight, but it’s actually three separate birds approaching. A beautiful moment topped off with a gorgeous moody sky as well.
