Caught these two male giraffes "necking" in the Mara. Necking is used to establish male dominance.

Such a cool moment to capture. Well done Cerett.

(there is some slight halo around the forefront Giraffes head/neck I see though) Just catches my eye overtime I look at this.

Thanks Hillbillygirl. Yes, I see what you're talking about. Not sure why that happened in post, but I replaced the image.

Very cool shot! So which one is dominant here, the one w/ his neck on top of the other?
