Protecting the young
This photo is more a documentation, than a good capture.
The wild dogs were on their way back to the puppies when they "stepped" over this journey of giraffe. They really wanted to get a feasty meal with this baby giraffe.
The mother giraffe protected her kid in putting it between her front legs so the dogs couldn´t get to it. The mother kicked and the dogs were running wild.
After 5 minutes or so the whole journey of giraffe came back to see what´s happening there. But the dogs, especially one dog, didn´t give up.
It was a strange sighting to watch these small dogs run around those huge creatures.
A magical sighting, we´ll never forget.
Taken at Kwando Lagoon, Botswana
