Finally, under cover of the night, these giraffes gather on the Masai Mara free of the hindrance of safari sight-seers or wildlife cameramen - or so they think. Moving gracefully along the plains of 'the cradle of life', the animals are totally unaware that they are being filmed in their natural habitat. Wildlife photographers strive and only occasionally succeed to capture the most unconscious moments of earth's most magnificent animals.
And now thanks to a unique style of photography National Geographic has managed to illuminate the night-time routines of giraffes, lions and tigers after the sun has gone down. These beautiful images were shot using a combination of light-enhancing and heat-seeking technology on a 'Starlight Camera'.
They revealed how the circle of life continues when the Sun's eyes are turned, with a trio of lions converging on the body of a zebra foal on the Masai Mara. The technique also illuminated a family of Asian elephants feeding at Yala National Park, in Sri Lanka
