This post is my submission to Cee Neuner’s Black&White Photo Challenge. Each week, photographers can submit photographs for a given theme and share it with friends and fellow photographers. This week’s topic is “Horns” – a subject that I can’t ignore. I just have to share some of my animal portraits. So, prepare for a little zoo parade of rhinos, watusis, and some birds, too.
I don’t know which animal comes to your mind first when you hear the word “horns.” For me, it is (of course) the rhino. To me, they are the quintessential horn carriers. I have a few in my collection.
Watusis are iconic animals. With their giant horns, they are always able to make a memorable impression. I was lucky enough to shoot two presentable photographs them.
Who would seriously think of birds with a topic like “Horns”? Well, prepare to learn a bit. There are, in fact, birds with horns, too. And they are aptly called hornbills. Quite an appropriate name, as you are about to see.
