This is “Patches” one of our giraffes on the gamefarm. Patches is not very fond of cameras, I prefer shooting “giraffe” in “The Kruger National Park”. Takes more time for that “special” capture but at least they give you time! Patches will stand for a few seconds and then turns his backside on you and walks away !
