Been hard at it, but it has been great. Enthusiastic employees makes training easy. A weekend off and Linda and I made a turn at Rietvlei Dam and guess what? We got some photos and over heard a conversation.
Ah Mommy looking for what there is to eat……
And under the tree having an afternoon nap like all good children should do… Baby…..
So small and already growing a horn… what that is a horn?????
Maybe we should just call it a … BUMP…..
“Come little one lets see what is over here…”
“What are we looking for Mom.???”
“Something to eat..!!”
“But I thought we lived on Milk from your belly..”
“I know what I eat is under there…”
“Whooow Mom what a big Butt you got.!!”
“Watchit …. that is not what you say to a lady…”
I’m catching up on reading blogs and this is just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen! Such a rare sight for most people. Great photos – what king of lens/how close were you?
Love your comments! Specially the last one…. hehe
What a sweet little thing…they have such prehistoric appearances, but your captions made me want to hug one! LOL! I love the little bump. I’ve never seen that before.
Awe, so cute!
Adorable, fun and great post! 🙂
All babes, no matter their size, are so beautiful. Such beautiful photos Bulldog, and your commentary as delightful as ever. 🙂
Good to see your rhino shots. I suppose just like humans, they start off cute…
So true… and then they either turn or become another stat of the poachers…
YOur captions are always tops. I love the photos, too. 🙂
Love the baby rhino…bump is a perfect word for it!
You are right Mrs P. that little bump that later in life is so sought after by some…
Darling! Sharing with a friend of mine who collects rhinos.
Glad you share them thanks…
Awww…I think she is sweet. I am so glad you and Linda had some downtime together and that the Lord afforded you this experience!! Also so glad that you are working with people that are making your life easier. You sooooo deserve it!! You are daily in my thoughts and prayers, Dear Friend.
Thank you Skye… the time off has been so enjoyable, but the back to work as much so…
Aww that is an adorable Rhino….
Just fabulous, Bulldog! Precious creatures
Thanks… did you see any in KNP… young I mean.??
We saw lots of rhino but no babies
I love the frontal picture with the little knob for a horn. So cute 🙂
hahahahaha! Oh, you always know how to make me laugh Rob. What a cutie and such excellent captures of these beauties! Thanks for sharing. 😀
Love the captions and what a gorgeous baby!
What cute baby pics! A lucky find.
Thanks Carol… I’d heard they were near the coffee shop and luckily they were…
so lovely dear Rob, but you know which one is my best, so beautifullllllllllllllll the sleeping cat!!!!! Thank you, have a nice weekend, love, nia
You’ve captured some nice mommy & baby moments. 🙂
so cute!!! Wow, you and Linda are so incredibly lucky to have these wonderful wildlife experiences. Enjoy them my friend! and thanks for sharing – as close as I get are your blogs.
Baby everythings are so cute bulldog – thanks for sharing these lovely pictures!
Already a really substantial little creature! Not so little, actually. Wonderful.
Not so little is right… I wonder what he weighs already.??
Enough to squash a normal pushchair quite flat, I would say!
The news of a baby rhino at Rietvlei is indeed a reason to celebrate, when normally the only news we get about rhinos these days are either bad or worse… Great pictures Bulldog, maybe someone somewhere sees his cute little face and decides to quit believing that the little “bump” on his nose belongs anywhere else.
I do agree with you… there are a few small ones in Rietvlei this year… good news for us all….
hehe….what a cheeky little baby….so cute sleeping…
That it is,… yet when you see how aggressive that little thing can get..!!!!
Nothing cuter than a little baby face! No matter how big the baby
What a sweet little baby, with his tiny little paws. Pawkisses for the Weekend 🙂
Thanks all in small scale… I love it…
Even as a baby they are big…but so cute.
They are just the most adorable..
I don’t think there’s a baby critter out there that isn’t cute and this little guy is adorable. Hope you’re not working too hard 🙂
They are so feisty even at this age … have a photo of this one trying to intimidate a full grow eland bull… lol… loving the work and should finish first contract next week then on to next… looks like there could be more lined up for September… but we need the money as Doctors short falls (insurance payout shortfalls) are pouring in, last few months have been a tad expensive with my health, but with the new apparatus for my sleep apnea, I’m like a man 20 years younger, feeling great…
20 years younger? Not sure if that’s a good thing for Linda or not LOL, but I am definitely glad to hear you are doing well and the business is taking off 🙂
Just read this reply to Ingrid. So you like the sleep apparatus…WOW, I am happy to hear that. Twenty years younger…makes me rethink trying it out again. What;s the name of your machine?
Hi Mrs P. my machine is the Resmed S8 and I’m using a full mask… I thought it would be uncomfortable but I find it fine… the difference of getting between 6 and 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep and waking with 90 % blood oxygen levels compared to 3 to 4 hours of interrupted sleep and rising with a blood oxygen level of 53 % is such a pleasure I cannot describe it… Linda says I’ve even started singing when I rise, which wakes her but she is so happy to see me alive and keen to get at work etc, she says nothing…. My daughter says it fixes everything in me except my deafness… lol… I will never be able to give this up, it is like a drug to me….
I am so glad to hear that.
So darling! I love baby anythings!
I specially enjoy seeing these, as our poaching has reach proportions one does not want to repeat… but let a poacher near these ones and I will be on to him as fast as I can and it will be his error….
ughhhh…..that is so sad. :((( Thank you for trying to stop it!!!
Nice pictures…and cute story! (Suzanne)
Thank you Suzanne.,….
Cute little fellow, but a bit cheeky to his mom. 😀 Great photos, bulldog. Nice to see you back again. Have a great weekend.
Thanks AD… only here for the weekend then back to the grind stone, that I must admit I am enjoying….
Ugly as rhinos are, the baby is cute in a way.
The baby rhino, for some reason, makes me think of a bull terrier…
Exactly. Not my favourite type of dog. Sorry. I like dogs, but ….
