Travels in Nepal # 56 Rhinoceros

During the elephant ride on our first day at Royal Chitwan National Park in Nepal we were delighted to see a Rhinoceros in the grassland next to the river. Our guide was very good at getting the elephant into position to get good views and good photos. I wish my bird photos had turned out as well.

Later on we had distant views of a family of Spotted Deer. These were rather harder to see because of the tall grass. They were also frightened away by another several groups of tourists also on an elephant ride.
