My Mud

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Lou Port

Since I have always lived in an urban environment and I have never been to Africa, the only way for me to see many of nature's animals up close is at the Toronto Zoo. On this occasion, I was watching the Zoo's two white rhinos, when I noticed one of them moving towards a very small mud puddle. As I focused for what I thought would be an interesting shot, the second rhino decided that she also wanted the mud puddle. As there was barely enough room for one, she pushed and fought the first rhino for possession. I took this photo during this momentary confrontation.

Location: Toronto Zoo, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
