I absolutely love to paint but my other passion is wildlife photography. I love being in the wild with a camera at hand in the presence of animals in their natural habitats. So for this piece I decided to bring two of my favorite things together! I hope y’all enjoy!
I photographed these giraffes in Kruger National Park, South Africa. Fun fact, the giraffe’s “horns” are actually referred to as ossicones. You can usually distinguish between a male and female giraffe as the male ossicones are a bit bald on top while the females have a tuft or hair 😉
