Shake it off

A giraffe shakes water off its head after drinking from Lake Masek in Tanzania. Your Shot photographer Andrew D. recalls that this sighting was approximately 600 yards from where he and his group had set up camp. “I had actually just changed my lens from a 400 mm to my 200 mm, which was another stroke of luck as I would not have been able to get the shot had I not changed,” he remembers. “Better to be lucky than good sometimes!”
