Masai Mara Silhouettes

I captured this image on the last evening I was in Kenya's Masai Mara National Park during the great migration. It was an absolutely magical, peaceful evening and I positioned myself between the sunset and these beautiful giraffes when a herd of wildebeests started passing by as well. I hope with every part of me that this beautiful place--one of my favorites in the world--and its wild animals still exist for future generations.
