(CNN) — Emma Gatland grabbed her fish-eye lens and pointed it up towards the sky.In her frame was a rhino, tied up by its snout and four feet, being airlifted by a helicopter — while suspended upside down. It was a peculiar sight, but for Gatland, the photo she captured in that moment demonstrated a connection between nature and humans. It’s something the 39-year-old wildlife photographer strives for with every click of the shutter. “You want to get into a low angle, get the feeling of what is happening — the creature being unharmed, but given the opportunity to live a little bit longer — and documenting what conservation (is),” Gatland says.
