A photographer was celebrating this week after this bizarre once-in-a-lifetime wildlife shot was published around the UK.
Tony Murtagh, 63, captured the trio of giraffes as they were grazing in the savannah plains of Kenya's Samburu National Reserve.
The office manager of Thatchers Drive, Maidenhead, was visiting the African nature reserve during a safari holiday in February 2010.
"When I saw the giraffes grouped like that I knew it would prove to be a great shot," said the father-of-three, whose picture was published in several national publications.
"I like the fact it looks as if there is only one body with three necks and heads. I was delighted with the image."
Tony, a member of Maidenhead Camera Club, shot the picture using a compact camera and was approached after placing it on a photography website.
