At first glance this may look like a bizarre mythological creature - but in fact this is in fact an amazing picture of three giraffes stood together.
Photographer Tony Murtagh captured the trio together as they were grazing in the savannah plains of Kenya's Samburu National Reserve.
The long-necked animals, which are about five to six metres tall, popped their heads up in an astonishing symmetrical fashion.
Three heads? Remarkable image of three giraffes grazing together on the the savannah plains of Kenya's Samburu National Reserve which was caught on camera by Brit Tony Murtagh who was on safari
Tony, 63, from Maidenhead, Berkshire, was visiting the African nature reserve during a safari holiday.
He said: 'When I saw the giraffes grouped like that I knew it would prove to be a great shot.
'I wasn't too surprised, because that was how I shot it but I was pleased the image had come out so well.
'I like the fact it looks as if there is only one body with three necks and heads. I was delighted with the image.'
In Kenya, this species of reticulated giraffe tend only to be found in the northern Samburu area and not in the southern regions.
