The mother of this baby Masai giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchi) leaned in at the top of the photo, providing a good example of the relative size of the two. Grumeti Game Reserve, Serengeti, Tanzania. The Masai giraffe are characterized by their large splotchy markings. (best to see the full tall thin photo)
Initially, I would have thought to crop out the portion of the giraffe's head/neck in the top left corner, but I see why you didn't. It adds an element of interest to the overall image and interaction with the giraffe that is the focal!
