Endangered Rhinos: New Stunning Photographs From Kenya

Below are 8 stunning and intimate photographs of white rhinos, taken with a BeetleCam at Solio Lodge wildlife conservancy, Kenya. 

The powerful images taken by British photographer, Will Burrard-Lucas, are part of his latest wildlife series. 

According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature's Red List of Threatened Species, black rhinos are labeled as "critically endangered," and Southern white rhinos are "near threatened."

With a long lens, Burrard-Lucas' traveled around Kenya, and found black rhinos to be "very shy and elusive," he tells CNN Travel

While he found white rhinos to be the opposite, claiming they were "quite sociable animals."

"It's a very different experience being able to actually see them while I'm photographing them," he says. "That was a wonderful experience to be able to see that calf and mother going about their daily life."
