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."

Check out the extraordinary images below:

Artist Creates Hyperrealistic Paintings Of Fish, Insects, Reptiles And Snails

Meet Young-sung Kim, the extraordinary artist from Seoul, Korea, that is about to take your senses on a magic ride! Kim creates insane hyperrealistic pictures that look way too real for the mind to even comprehend that it's just a painting! 

His paintings, oil on canvas, look more realistic than actual photographs!

The Insider interviewed Kim on his process of what he calls, "an advanced, extreme hyperrealism that precedes any reality — more real than photographs and high-definition monitors." 

He continued describing the process and how planning each new piece involves, "collecting small animals, taking photographs, preparing a canvas, sketching, drawing, and painting with small brushes."

Kim also informed the Insider that he works 12 hours per day on creating these masterpieces.It can take anywhere from 3 to 10 months to complete one painting. 

Since Kim was a small child, he's been "collecting, observing, and studying .. I was amazed at the detail and the subtle colors that I saw in my work, just as I looked through a microscope." 

Why hyperrealism? Kim explains, "I have chosen my genre as hyperrealism because people in today's society think of animals and nature as methods of ornament, experiment, and edibility, My genre may be able to make the people think twice about the unintentionally abusive nature of their behavior towards animals and nature."

"Let's take care of small animals," Kim said. "If they cannot live, humans cannot live either."

We completely agree, Kim! Keep creating and loving life!

"In this story of kindness, friendship, and the fear of being left behind, a friendship takes flight as a mouse that wants to fly and an injured bird cross paths. 

Final film from the School of Visual arts. I directed, background painted, animated, and did about half of the cleanup/coloring myself! The rest was handled by my awesome team in the credits. 

Thank you to Colin Andrew Grant for the fantastic score, and thanks to SVA for the two grants that helped me produce this film! And thank you all so much for watching. 

This was a huge labor of love for me, and I'm so glad I finally get to share it!"
