Photo: One-Horned Rhino

"Tall grass is the favorite habitat of the greater one-horned Indian rhinoceros, Rhinoceros unicornis, found only in the [Indian] subcontinent. It grows to a weight of more than two tons on a diet of little but grass. Of the 1,900 or so left on earth, Chitwan harbors about 450."

Long Exposures

When making long exposures, use a remote release to avoid camera movement. If you don't have a remote release, use the camera's self-timer.
