Description: Full moon captured with Giraffe mother and baby early morning just before the sunrise.

Story from behind the lens: It was a full moon night and I visualised a possibility to shoot it against any big animal. But that evening I was not successful in getting any opportunity. I asked my guide to start early morning from the camp before the sunrise to try and see if we get any big animal like Giraffe or Elephant as the moon was still visible in its full glory and approaching the west horizon. We spotted Giraffe and her baby and Alex positioned the vehicle perfectly. Sun was about to arise but its rays touched the earth and Giraffe and baby were illuminated by sun rays. The result was just pleasing while sun kissed the baby and moon blessed it.
