Long Face
Long Face
"Why the long face?", I asked.
"Because I'm a giraffe",she said." Sometimes, the most obvious things are the easiest for me overlook.

Your describtion is very funny, lol!
If this giraffe could see this portrait, she would say "Don't you like my long face?"

Terrific perspective and closeup, Dan. A long face goes quite well with a long neck, but she should do quite well ... talking giraffes are quite rare nowadays ;)

One of the finest giraffe portraits I've ever seen, Dan.
Those eyes...the tight diagonal cropping, the clarity. Everything shows the elegance in an animal so often portrayed as gangly and awkward.
Beautiful work!
