Yup, Cait and I went to Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle on Sunday! If you ask me (and my kids), giraffes are pretty cool! It’s somewhat amazing how tall these guys are. 😀
Considering how much fun we had, pretty sure we will be getting some season passes so expect more zoo pictures this year! Enjoy…
How did you get eye level? At the zoo in LA you can feed them at certain times of the day. Maybe when Roman isnt scared of them anymore! Im looking forward to your and Caits future pics!
Hi Morgan, I was using a 300mm zoom lens as well as standing on a rock (which, the zoo keeper “nicely” asked me to get off of). 😀
Lovely shot of giraffe. Those bokeh in the background seems to compliment the spots on the giraffe. Nice use of DOF to set the focus on the animal.
Thank you very much Sasi!
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a shot like this of a giraffe. I didn’t know they have little mohawks running down their necks, or those cute little tufts of hair on their horns (?) Spectacular capture!
Hahaha, I so thought the same thing! I love the mohawk. 🙂
Great shot David! I agree with Mike, giraffes can be a bear to capture. Tried for quite a bit at Disney’s Animal Kingdom last year and never did come away with a shot I liked as much as I do this one. Very nice perspective.
Thank you Jim. We actually stayed at this exhibit for sometime, there’s just something about them…
Love the zoo, the giraffes are a favorite. Most people would focus on the length and here you have such a unique perspective. It’s a great shot, shows personality.
Thank you very much Martina, greatly appreciated! I can’t wait to head back.
Thank you Sandra. 🙂
Good job. Giraffes can be hard to capture well because we always have to look up so high and as a result they’re always backlit. You’ve balanced the light brilliantly!
Thank you very much Mike!
Lovely capture of one of my favorite animals. I call them “the gentle giant”.
I totally understand why you would call them that! Thank you for commenting Emily. 😀
My daughters also like giraffes.They go to see them first in the zoo.
What a nice expression of this giraffes. 🙂
I like it – giraffes are a lot like horses – big but peaceful. I’m guessing he was in the enclosure with the high fence. I wish he was somewhere where we could get a better shot of him.
I totally agree with you Mike, I too wish there was a better view point!
