Description: Giraffe in labour looks back to check on her baby emerging

Story from behind the lens: Enroute to a Masai Village, we came across a giraffe sitting alone in the middle of a plain. At first we thought the giraffe was injured but then she stood up and we saw the baby legs emerging. We waited quietly not to disturb her and watched her give birth. Even in birth, giraffe’s are the epitome of grace.
