Giraffes Necking

Pictures by DAVE MCKELVIE:


Fine photos of 2 bulls vying for power (=mating rights) in a graceful display of massive power


The protagonists face up to one another


Taking it in turns in this extraordinary ritual, using their giant heads as mallets,they bash against each other’s chests…


These two look to me like young bulls practicing…


The real thing is awesome as these huge mammals bash way at each other until one gives up….
