Posing with it’s mouth full

Last October I spent a couple of days at our local zoo, the Columbus Zoo, and had a good time visiting the animals while getting in quite a bit of walking.  It’s time to put away that folder to make room for this years images (when it’s warm enough and more animals are out) so I want to share a few photos from that visit before they are filed away.  I happened to be in the African area of the zoo when it was feeding time for the giraffes.  I was caught a bit off guard (meaning I was shooting to the left when this was happening right under me) when this one leggy creature came up for a nibble.

  1. Kind of cute isn’t he? I’ve got no musical tie in for this one, sorry.

    He is a cutie! I have a beautiful oil painting of a giraffe in my guest bathroom! Love me a giraffe!

  3. They are such strange and lovely creatures. I love that you did closeups, because their heads and faces are just as fascinating as their long-leggity height and attenuated necks. xo

  4. Ogh I love the second image especially – the background lighting is perfect!
