In that afternoon we crossed many water holes and at each one there were many animals trying to get water. This one was almost dry and there was a structure of cement to keep some water, some of these water holes had a solar energy machine to bring water from the ground. Here e can see how difficult is to a giraffe to get water, how dangerous it is for them..
Naquela tarde nós passamos por vários buracos de água e em cada um havia muitos animais tentando encontrar água. Este aqui estava quase seco e haviam feito uma estrutura de concreto para reter um pouco mais desta água, muitos destes buracos de água tem um motor solar que puxa água do subsolo.
Aqui vemos como é grande o esforço das girafas para beber água e quão perigoso isso é para elas.

You have shown a real jungle life which the poor animals are facing. The barren land and the poor animals. Well shown.

Giraffes are such tall, graceful animals, it is sad to think what a hard existence they live.
Your photograph shows quite clearly the reality of arid lands and the difficulties that animals endure in their quest to survive.
Thank you for this.
Have a good day,

Land looks dry and hot, Jorge.
Vapors actually distort a bit the texture of the soil and the title give good idea about the photo.
nice taken on roadside.

Que paisaje desolado y caluroso nos pesentas aca Jorge, me gusta la jirafa de atas por su posicion y lamento la falta de agua
Buena captura y contraste con el cielo
Un poquito torcida hacia la izquierda, me parece

The poor giraffe looks like me when I am trying to tie my shoes! I like the selective focus with the distant trees blurred.
