Here's another one from last year's Wildlife Bootcamp in Spain. The animals sometimes came very close to us, as did this giraffe. Dark rain clouds were forming overhead, which I thought would make a great backdrop for the warmer colors of the giraffe. I decided to go for a very unusual angle when the giraffe was towering over me. Shooting straight up gave this slightly confusing perspective that really shows how tall these graceful animals actually are. One of my favorite shots of the trip - looking forward to the next one.
