Chobe Giraffe negotiates shallow water 0R7E2324

Due to high water in 2009, the Chobe River went out of its normal banks and flooded all the low areas of the park, obliterating the roads. This made for wonderful opportunities to photograph wildlife in the water as one could drive right to the water's edge.


For some reason it seems as if the food on that side was better than this side so many animals crossed arms of the flooded Chobe River in search of succulent feed. This Giraffe is crossing on such arm returning to the park proper.


That is a Yellow-billed Stork in the background feeding on the far side of the water.
