Photos taken by Nikon Ambassador Ami Vitale tagged with #nikond5s on Instagram

Several photos taken in Africa by Nikon Ambassador Ami Vitale were tagged with #nikond5s on Instagram. Of course this could be a typo, but it could also be the promo campaign for the Nikon D5s camera:

Update – here is the email I received from Ami Vitale:

“I saw your article about the rumored Nikon D5S. I’m very sorry for the confusion. The images were taken with a D5. That was a typo on my Instagram captions. Thank you for catching it! I’m correcting now.”

Shorty the giraffe loves to give kisses! Here he greets wildlife keeper Banki at Sarara Camp (@sararacamp) on the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in Northern Kenya. Shorty, or “Fupi” in Swahili, will go back to the wild once strong enough to survive on his own. He is a reticulated giraffe, which scientists have recently determined to be one of four distinct species of giraffe. Reticulated giraffe number about 8,000 individuals — as a separate species, it makes them some of the most endangered large mammals in the world as the population has dropped an estimated 70 percent in 15 years. The excellent wildlife keepers at Sarara and nearby Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) are working hard to rescue and rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned animals. @nrt_kenya @lewa_wildlife @nature_africa @kenyawildlifeservice @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa #giraffe #savegiraffes #reticulatedgiraffe #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #natgeolodges #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s #photojournalism #amivitale

Video by @amivitale. A baby elephant takes a splash in the cooling mud at Reteti Elephant Sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e) in Northern Kenya. Elephants cover themselves in mud as a shield against the harsh sun and the rescued elephants being cared for at Reteti are instinctively teaching each other many of these useful skills. Read more about Reteti in my @NatGeo story: Follow @r.e.s.c.u.e and nearby @sararacamp to learn more about these initiatives and help support their work! @lewa_wildlife @nrt_kenya @nature_africa @conservationorg @tusk_org @kenyawildlifeservice @sandiegozoo @natgeo @natgeocreative @thephotosociety @nikonusa #elephant #saveelephants #retetielephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #nikond5s #photojournalism #amivitale
