21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Giraffe looking for food

Visiting Etosha National Park, I was surprised by the drought. When I saw this giraffe, I was amused by the fact that only its head protrudes from the bushes, but I chose this image because it shows how difficult it is for ruminants to find food in the dry season.
