Emung - of the bush

Emung - of the bush - The Big Five
The Maasai name for the Black Rhinocerus (Diceros bicornis) is Emung which means 'of the bush.' Despite the fact it is the second largest land mammal it is elusive and sightings are relatively scarce. However, I was very fortunate to get photographs of this critically endangered animal 'up close and personal.' As it sleeps amongst the bush the scene is one of utter peace and tranquility which contrasts strongly with the latent threat of its rapier like horn and irritable reputation. As my uncle used to say "she's no trouble when she's asleep!" He was of course referring to my Aunt and not the Black Rhino!
