Giraffes at Sunset, Masai Mara Park, Kenya

Photograph by Randy Crossley

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature and Environment

After a safari in the Masai Mara Park we were racing back to our camp trying to get home before sunset. No one is allowed out in the park after dark. When I saw this photo op I had to convince our driver to stop just for a second so I could take this one picture. It was worth the risk of a fine for being out after sunset but fortunately we made it back in time.

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photography Contest. See photo galleries, play jigsaw puzzles, and download wallpaper of images from more than 105,000 submissions.
