I've been so tempted to do a butterfly upload like everybody else, so this is my first attempt at a butt-erfly shot but I think something is wrong here. LOL Kidding aside, I hope you enjoy the unconventional view of these Rhino ladies. Now ain't these two perfect behinds... The lady on the left boasts the longest horn in southern Africa and she is so vulnerable to poachers killing her in cold blood, hacking off the horn for a mere $10 to satisfy the Eastern market for aphrodisiacs.

She has a special place in my heart. Some time ago when her calf was still suckling, I had the privilege of her coming right up to me where I was laying underneath the game ranger's van, so close that I could not focus on her face. She was just investigating to make sure I was not posing a threat to her calf. She is still in the wild, alive and well and I hope you enjoy her backside with me.

Thank you for comments and favorites on my previous upload:

I think you're on the right track, here. Butterflies are a dime a dozen, but this butt-erfly is unique! The elusive RhinoButt-erfly. Maybe a series? :D "Omganimalbutt-erflies of Africa" Think about it! :P

This is one butt-erfly that could kill you by simply landing on you. Like it.

Excellent point of view, Piet! and instead of bmac62 purpose, better be just a photographer of those two Butt - erfly Rhino "ladies" ...

Men and their fascination with butts. :-| LOL Kidding .. of course, not YOU! Only Rhino butts! lol Interesting shot Pieter; a view I dont see every day, that's for sure. Being a Minnesotan, I thought these were elephant behinds till I read. Sweet, and precious story though of how she came up to you like that, so close you couldn't focus on her beautiful face. I'll bet all the wild animals of Africa just adore you ..... they all sense your love for them. :)

Ha Ha, you fooled me, the ebot said the title, and when it opened I was flabbergasted! I had to laugh, wonderful photo op these ladies have given you, and wonderful picture you got! I love that you were able to provide some background on the one lady .. hope she dies a natural death.
