A Beautiful Day To Be A Giraffe

Black and white giraffe print

Spicies: Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis)

Location: Etendeka, Namibia

There is something exceptional about giraffes, and it’s not just their absurdly long necks. These animals are an integral part of the African landscape and play a unique role in the ecosystem.

How is it possible for a single species to be the most elegant and awkward member of the animal kingdom?


You need only spend a little bit of time around giraffes to answer that question. They are freaks of nature in the nicest possible sense. Their long, unwieldy limbs make it seem as if their movements are happening in slow motion. Seeing them galloping across the savanna is as mesmerizing as watching them drink water in a near split position is hilarious. Their striking spot pattern is straight out of fashion week. Watching their snake-like tongues stripping the leaves from branches with over three-inch-long acacia thorns, otherwise known as devil thorns, is truly a sight to behold.


The adolescent giraffe in this image is perfectly backlit, the early morning rays creating a halo-like outline that allow its unique anatomy to really pop out from the scrubby surroundings of Namibia’s Torra conservancy. The same soft morning light gives the image a gentle feeling and ensures that this print adds a sense of tranquillity to any space that it is placed in. Early morning safaris are one of life’s most authentic pleasures and having a large, high-quality print like this one in your home or office is a great way to experience a bit of this wonder each and every day.
