A Tribute to Mother Earth -
The Earth has her own ways of recovery from the all the dreadful events that has happened in the past 4.6billion years of it's existence. Millions of species have come, evolved and a few have gone like they never existed. One such creature the Greater One Horned Rhinoceros once found across the northern part of the Indian subcontinent, vanished to the brink of extinction because of habitat loss and poaching, humans of course being the cause. Millions of years of survival was disturbed by our race, the numbers have now recovered from a handful to a few thousand individuals, that's probably one of the examples of how nature takes her course. She has recovered from catastrophic events in the past, and the human distortion will soon be washed away as well.

Save Our Rhino Africa / India

Rhinos are poached for their horns for some traditional medicine concoction in Southeast Asian countries.

In India rhinos are mainly seen in Kaziranga National Park, Assam and Dudhwa National Park, UP adjoining Nepal's Manas National Park.

Infact, Rhinos were reintroduced in Dudhwa National Park in 1984 and since then the numbers have been climbing.
20% of all proceeds are for rhino conservation, kindly contribute

Intuition is the highest form of intelligence. #thisissovereignty

A couple years ago I fell in love with a Rhino, specifically the Northern White Rhino. Unfortunately the story is going to be a tragedy, there isn't going to be a happy ending. Back when I first fell in love, there were seven Northern White Rhinos still on this planet. Seven. What a very small number. .
Now in 2018, there are two females alive on this planet. Two is a much smaller number. And as advanced as science is, we can't get babies from two females. Najin is 28 and Fatu, 17, which means that with their 50 year lifespan, I will see the end of this species within my lifetime. Extinction.
.
Right now the two last rhinos are in Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya. Someday soon I hope to visit them, see them for myself, before it's too late. .
To commemorate our love (possibly it's one sided) I took out the oils and charcoal to make a portrait of a noble rhino with horn in tact. I used heavy charcoal and focussed on geometric lines and angles. Then I used oil washes to mark out a silhouette and contrast areas. Then I used oils to paint the skin and horn. The oil paint and charcoal worked well together to echo the dusty, 'of the earth', deep creased textures these gentle giants carry. .

A baby rhino playing in mud... that is all

Male Three Horned Rhinocerous Beetle (Chalcosoma sp.) found early one morning attracted to a light trap. Though relatively harmless to pick up, once it hooks onto you with it's claws then he is coming home with you! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Very impressive insect.#Three #Horned #Rhinocerous #Beetle #Chalcosoma #insect #insectsofinstagram #beetlesofinstagram #insectguru #nature #naturephotography #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildlifeadventuresย #macrophotography #Malaysia

But of course, what's a trip to Mysore without visiting the zoo?

In the picture, you see Mr.Bobbli, who is starting at me with suspicion. This massive majestic being wobbled around with his jiggly bum and occasional yawns. It was such a sight to watch him be so nonchalant about people getting so excited about his slightest moves. Also, the fur on his ear - so adorable! Rhinos are supposed to be scary, no?
