Shooting to Scale in Nature

Category: Nature


Photo and caption by Scot Proctor

We had been in Tsavo West for two days looking at every kind of African wildlife imaginable. We were so attracted to the Baobob trees and kept wanting to stop to just take in their magnificence. We had also been enjoyed the beautiful Masai Giraffes, which seemed so tall and graceful. We stared at this tree and then noticed, down on the left of the trunk, an adult giraffe peering over the foliage towards us. Suddenly the Baobob seemed extra, extra large and the giraffe seemed extra, extra small in comparison.
