Photo of the Day

October 25, 2019

Lone Rhino

"The day had been very quiet at this waterhole in Etosha National Park in Namibia, with little wildlife activity and a rather dull, overcast sky," says Your Shot photographer J. Georget. "But after waiting over seven hours, just as the sun was piercing through the clouds, this rhinoceros finally decided to come out of the bush for a drink, creating a very magical moment."
