Given that giraffes reach a stunning 18 feet in height, they are bound to look a bit out of place. And when seen relative to an implausibility (their collective name) of wildebeests, which measure in at under five feet, the wonderful awkwardness is even more striking. But regardless of scale and vocabulary, this is just a fabulous photo! Thanks to Rollie Rodriguez who shot this at Lake Nakura National Park, Kenya.
