Dawn on the Mara

Subject: Giraffe
Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya
Daybreak on the Maasai Mara produces an explosion of gentle pastels just before the sun begins to warm the grasslands and make quick work of a night's worth of dew. A lone bull giraffe, having taken advantage of the cover of darkness to get a morning drink from the Talek River, ambles along the treeline bordering the water and returns to the relative safety of the open savanna to graze and pass the day.
