On a visit to a Kenya watering hole, the husband-and-wife photography team spotted a female giraffe—almost invisible in the gathering dusk—standing over her newborn calf. "The baby stared at us with amazement," says Momatiuk. "We were the first humans she must have seen." The photographers decided not to approach any closer, instead using a 2x converter on their 600mm lens and pushing the Provia 100 film a full stop to compensate for low light.
