    A sign of our changing times, Black Rhinos can no longer allow nature to dictate their future. Poaching (notice the de-horned stump) has meant drastic action needs to be taken to try and protect these beautiful creatures. Here, a vet assesses a Black Rhino after a successful treatment to remove ticks from its rear. These animals are now so rare that their survival requires human intervention, even for the most common of issues.

    Great reportage shot, it pulls you right into the frame. The image is both visually compelling with the downward perspective, and intellectually intriguing with its timely topic. It made you think about the state of the world from the comfort in front of a computer screen. -B. Yen
