These two giraffes, on the Serengeti Plain in Africa, are bumping each other's necks in a courtship ritual. Courtship usually involves a complex set of behaviors believed to serve as confirmation that the participants are of the same species but of opposite sex, are in good physiological condition, and do not threaten each other.
