Description: A giraffe reaches for leaves as the sun rises to herald a golden Maasai Mara dawn.

Story from behind the lens: Our Kicheche guide, Johnson, put us into a perfect position that silhouetted a giraffe against the rising sun. The giraffe obliged by reaching high for tasty leaves, providing a photogenic composition that framed the golden background light.
