Description: Young Maasai Giraffe

Story from behind the lens: One morning in the Mara, we had the lovely treat of coming over the hill just as a herd of giraffes made their way across the road. The light was hazy, casting a glow on the brush. We watched as they fed on trees, and as we were driving away, we spotted this young giraffe, camouflaged so well into the stump he looked as if he was part of the tree, yet another reminder of the genius and perfection of nature.
