Interesting Photo of the Day: Charging Rhino in Mid Flight

It can be incredibly scary to be on the approaching end of an angry animal, especially when said animal is a rhino, which is widely regarded as one of the most dangerous animals on the planet. To capture a photograph of a charging rhino not only takes photographic skills, but also a heaping does of courage. Just ask photographer, Justus Vermaak, a South African resident who was able to capture this amazing photograph:

The photo was taken in Bella Bella, Limpopo, South Africa, a part of the world in which the rhinos are native to. The pictured rhino is a white rhino, the second largest land mammal behind the elephant. A white rhino reaches heights of around six foot and often weigh over two tons. While the black rhino is the more aggressive of the rhino types, the white rhinos are larger in size, are also very territorial, and use their impressive size to protect it by charging at what is threatening them. It is assumed Vermaak used a pretty long lens to get this amazing shot, but, even so, the amount of bravery he had to muster up to get the shot is applaudable.
