This is simply a wonderful shot, Erwin!

Amazing light and well caught exposure on these tall fellows.
Their partly shown mirror-reflections do add a lot to the overall appeal of the scene IMO.
Good sharpness and well clarity against a wild surroundings.
Nice work!

Hi Erwin.

Awesome gaggle of giraffes...I know its not gaggle but it sounds good.
I do like the way you show the awkwardness of drinking for them, such a shame they cant wade in waist deep and have a good drink, but now know others have thier eyes on them. They do look impressive being in a group though, you capturte the pattern so clearly, tfs

stv ;o))

You are so lucky to be able to photograph wild animals in their natural habitat. Awesome capture of those giraffes. I guess the others are standing guard in case of preditors. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

Another beautiful photo of your series of photos with animals, fantastic scene from "daily life" of giraffes

Ciao Erwin, great capture of superb creatures, fantastic reflections, good ambientation, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Good morning Erwin,

A very nice set of different animals and these giraffes offer beautiful reflections of their long legs almost inflexible.
Ideal colors filled with beautiful lights.
Thank you for sharing Bravo for this composition
