14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Giraffe in the Middle

This curious giraffe kept looking our way while on safari in Nairobi National Park. I waited for the two behind to get into the best position, as I zoomed in on him, I noticed he had a small tear coming out of his left eye. Since then I have wondered if it was a tear of sadness.
