Pair of young giraffes
This pair of young male giraffes (Giraffa camelopardalis) was photographed in Mashatu Game Reserve in the Tuli Block, Botswana. It was quite late in the afternoon, when the soft light from the setting sun gives images a pleasing warm hue.

I used a Canon EOS 450D (Canon Rebel XSi 12.2MP) with a Canon EF70-300mm lens zoomed to its maximum focal length. Shutter speed was 1/50 at an aperture of f8 with ISO set to 400.
