Thanks Pumbaa,
I will try to add some more stories about peacefull kruger... that;s why I started with the Impala giving birth.
Have another story in mind very soon with love / babies of an "not really beloved" animal (in general).
:) :)

Great love story sequence, Aat,

and you said it already "Kruger is not just crual, or kills or hunting / chasing and eating but also …love"

so why not capture and show such beautiful pictures :gflower:

Thanks Grantmissy,
Life is a celebration I think...we just don't think about that all the time and not always appreciate it too much but life is great and I must say...preparing the pictures for the stories brings memories back how wonderful nature (life) is. :) :)

Aat your entire travel tale is magnificent. Your photo’s of the giraffes are to me a celebration of life itself. Thank you :thumbs_up:

This behaviour between 2 male giraffes is known as "necking" . They use their necks to establish dominance over one another and on occasion this leads to serious injury .

Highbury,
Difference with this sighting...there was no sign of fighting or aggression or showing dominance or pushing at all. They were just very very friendly, kind with each other.... more Liking then anything else. :)
