Entry Description

Whilst on safari in the Ruaha National Park in Tanzania, we drove round a corner in the track to find our way blocked by three giraffes. Their necks were beautifully alinged for a moment, as if they were posing deliberately for the image. It was like a gift to a photographer on Christmas Day!
