“We came across this very newborn Giraffe calf – still wet from birth and doing its very first steps, still very wobbly and still having to sort its legs. The next we saw were two lionesses, trying to attack the little baby while the mother desperately and furiously tried to protect its little one. Courageously she kicked at the lionesses again and again until the baby slowly but surely got more and more sure-footed. However, the lionesses attacked the baby twice – the image shows one of these incredible attacks. It’s nature for sure but it was still hard to watch. Unbelievably but true: the baby managed it to get back to its feed and finally galloped away with its mother until they disappeared behind the horizon.”
