Winter in the South Luangwa Valley, Zambia. I thought the colour of the leaves made a nice frame for these two young giraffes walking through the woods.

Forgotten the name of these type of giraffes but a really impressive picture, Vicky.

A lovely shot. It's when the bush is dry that their camouflage really works well. Of course that's when it's most needed. You can say the same for tigers. In the dry they match the bush, and when it's wet the bush is so dense it doesn't matter.Grin

As you say the bushes make a great frame for this capture. Unusual colour on these guys. Well done. Peter.

Obviously a tree, I think, but just below the lead Giraffe's nose, there is the shape of a large cat, with ears prickedWink
