Description: Hot Air Balloon ride with mother and baby giraffe in the shadow

Story from behind the lens: Took this picture on October 1, 2023 and was surprised to catch a mother and new born giraffe hiding in the shadow of our balloon buy and acacia tree. I took hundreds of picture during our trip to Kenya but this one stood out on a very quiet morning.
