Strange creatures!

A female Masai Giraffe knee-deep in long grass crops small Acacia bushes in the glowing light of dawn.


This image was taken by the foot of the Oloololo escarpment in the western Masai Mara, Kenya. We left our lodge in the grey-dark before sunrise and hit the savannah just in time for the first rays of the rising sun to pick out this giraffe. The low light of the new dawn sun created warm golden tones and gave this image a strange three-dimensional appearance.


Framed by a friend.
