Description: Two Giraffes Fighting

Story from behind the lens: We found these two Giraffes shortly after leaving camp in the morning. They were swinging their massive heads into each other's chests, unless an avoidant maneuver was taken. At some points, they would stop, and rotate in a circle together - like a mirror image - then resume the battle. What struck me was how silent the fight was; there were no grunts or groans, the only sound was the breeze over the savannah.
