Description: A mother giraffe interacts with her young baby on the golden plains of the Maasai Mara

Story from behind the lens: We were scanning for leopards when we came across this mother giraffe and her few day old baby. It was a joy to watch them bond with each other out in the open plains, and this brief interaction between the two showed the care each felt for the other.
