Hello Erwin,
A marvellous capture of the Giraffes at the waterhole. Fantastic details and lovely reflections in the water. Beautiful colours and well composed too!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Erwin,

i followed with attention this your series taken at this waterhole and i was struck by the ease that you South African photographer have into find subjects of this kind.In good part my critiques concern something of this nation.I'd have cropped only the half giraffe you can spot in the far left, it spoils a bit the composition, for the rest good light management and timing.It's interesting to understand the difficulties and, at the same time, the naturalness of this way for drink.



A sight one does not often see and yoy managed to get four of them drinking at the same time!
Nice grouping, well done!
