Camera: Nikon Z9

Lens: Nikon 500mm f/5.6 PF

Aperture: f/5.6

Shutter speed: 1/800

Description: Two male giraffes 'necking' for dominance over the harem.

Story from behind the lens: We came across the two male giraffes challenging each other using their powerful neck blows. I wanted to capture the rhythm in the action including their faces/eyes and how they lower their heads to generate the force.
