Description: Giraffe birth

Story from behind the lens: We were quickly driving to get to where a leopard had been spotted and our Gerald happened to see a lone giraffe and slowed down. We were all thinking why are we stopping to see a giraffe when we all wanted to see the leopard. We quickly changed our mind when we noticed it was a giraffe giving birth. We sat and watched for about an hour and she finally gave birth. What an awesome experience!!! We watched the birth and then watched the new born take its first step. What a fantastic spot by Gerald and a wonderful experience.
