Little and Large Giraffes

I have been on a number of safaris, and seen a few baby giraffes, but never from this perspective. It was amazing seeing the size difference from afar, which I tried to capture in the setting of the Masai Mara savanna. I wanted to show how small even the large baby giraffe is compared to its mom, but how small mom is when looking at the wider environment.
