That is a beautiful black and white wildlife fine art photograph of two giraffes drinking at a waterhole at the edge of the salt pan. The two impressive giraffes stand left, while one giraffe is drinking with its head down. But the giraffe on the left, it seems, is trying to reach the soft clouds floating in the sky. It lifts its head, standing tall, and pointing with its mouth high into the sky. Maybe someday it will reach the clouds!
In this fine art photograph of two giraffes drinking, you can see the lowered neck of one giraffe. That position prevents excess blood flow to the brain. Therefore they have jugular veins that have a series of one-way valves. That blocks the excess blood flow to their brains. At the same time, it is a vulnerable position for a giraffe, as it makes the process of drinking quite tricky. Interestingly, giraffes only need to drink water every couple of days despite their size. That also depends on the amount of water found in their plant-based diet.
The giraffe, Camelopardalis, is in the category vulnerable in the IUCN red list.
