Rhino, South Africa Pt II by heatherae Rhino, South Africa Pt II by heatherae
The White Rhino. It's heart breaking what is happening to these beautiful creatures. In a few years, they may all be gone. At the end of January 2013 I am going to Zimbabwe to do a Rhino conservation program to try make a difference, even if it's small. We must change something.

This is my 1st DD! Thank you everyone for the beautiful comments! <3

I hate those hunters who wants their horns, can't they realize the horns are made of hair! I'm gonna tell WWF to give the rhinos metal implanted into their skulls and ribs.

WOW - Beautiful! It is beyond sad what is happening! The cruelty that these magnificent animals have to go through is beyond words. I hope that in buying one of those braclets for the rhino fund will help.

Well,even so,the White Rhino species as a whole isn't as threatened as the Black Rhino.In fact,the rest of the White Rhinos may one day number in the hundreds of thousands,thanks to conservation efforts.I'm not so sure about Black Rhinos though.

First of all it's adorable! Second, the shot is so beautiful ... I like the fact it's at least clear enough like I feel it's getting out of the screen and last thing because I don't wanna make this long... the lightning is........ DAMN PERFECT! Love the capture though ... great choice, IsacGoulart!
