Friday Photo #2: The Acacia

The Acacia is perhaps one of the most iconic of African trees, standing tall and proud. The top heavy shape is characteristic of browsing by giraffe, who can reach up into the lower leaves. This one stands just a few meters from where I’m staying on the UmPhafa Private Nature Reserve, South Africa.
