Giraffe fighting

Giraffe fighting

I came across these two male giraffes very early this morning, They were having a good fight. It is always a little bizarre watching giraffe males fighting. They stand side by side and pound each other with their heads, swinging them like massive medieval maces. The fight went on for a good 15 minutes and I took a variety of images. Because they were standing on the river bank I was only able to photograph them from one direction; as silhouettes with the bright sky behind them. The resulting images are very graphic and two dimensional – I quite like them.
