These images were taken in Lake Nakuru, Kenya, at a watering hole near our hotel room. The second image was captured by my wife (who will kill me if I don't give her credit). I understand that Giraffes are very vulnerable while their drinking.

Nice! It's a terrible design flaw, what these poor creatures have to do to get water into them. they tend to wait until no one else is present to dare to take a drink because of how awkward and vulnerable they become.

Nice shots! I'm sorry... ... I but like the 2nd one! ;-)a !

Just kidding! The light in the first one is great against the storm clouds.

Nakuru was a high light of our Kenyan Holiday.

Very well captured on both, but sorry, have to say, that second one is awesome.

That's okay, it's a friendly competition (I think).
