Is this really love?
In the silence of the African bush, preparing for sleep, two giraffes were displaying affection before darkness fully set in. The sun, which had disappeared behind the horizon a few moments earlier, painted the sky with unusual colors, as if intentionally creating a magical backdrop for this serene picture. However, it's unfortunately a romantic but misleading interpretation. Between these giraffes, there was, unfortunately, no tenderness. They were two males, engaged in a picturesque setting, fighting for dominance by delivering headbutts to each other. Despite its innocent appearance, such a fight could potentially end with the death of one of the opponents.
