Artist Karen Knorr snapped these two giraffes near closing time at Regent’s Park zoo last summer. The interior was photographed separately, in an 18th-century royal hunting lodge just outside Palermo, Italy, and then stitched in with Photoshop. She says, “giraffes could be found in royal menageries across Europe and were creatures of great fascination across the world. It’s likely they would have wandered in the royal lodges as entertainment for guests. In our age of the Anthropocene, giraffe numbers plummeted by 40% in the last three decades, and less than 100,000 remain today.” #RASummer #ImageoftheDay
