There is something very sad about this images, as if representing our disappearing wilderness and the marvelous creatures that live in it. I'm afraid sometime in the not too far future, the last living giraffe in the wild will walk away from this earth just like this...

Hopefully enough people care in this world so that will never happen.

A powerful image, JJ

The interest is captured by the muted colours and unusual composition. Well done!

And I agree what others have said / written.

A very emotional photo, to be sure. Aside from that, the composition & muted color is awesome.
