13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
Giraffe Sparring

Shot at the end of a game drive when we were tired and ready for lunch. Then we came across this pair of giraffes sparring. We quickly forgot all about being tired and hungry, took out our cameras, and fired away. They “fought” for about ten minutes until they were spooked by a baboon who claimed his front row seat. They ran off in separate directions, results to be determined at a later date!
