just been catching up with your collection again after your Aloe dichtoma pic popped to the top of my 'conversations' list - I've been concentrating on the stuff i've been doing in the UK recently rather than SA - and I'd forgotten how nice your stuff was. Cheers, Graham

It is the great shot and your observation - the figure of giraffe is similar to the shape of tree... They look as the spectators of the sky theatre... :)

Hallo Markus,

das ist mal wieder ein super Bild! Sieht aus, als ob Du mit der Giraffe in nächster Nähe die hereinbrechnede Nacht erwarten würdest (hoffentlich ohne Raubtiere).
