Thank you for providing the camera settings for the giraffe image above.

 

The smaller giraffe on the right has reduced its overall profile more than any giraffe I've ever seen.

 

I like images like yours, which show less commonly observed behavior.

 

Very nice.

Several Reticulated Giraffe arrived near the Ewaso Nyiro River together. They looked toward the water, but seemed to hesitate.
 
As we observed them, behind us a large group of Helogale parvulu were running about.
