Great Bg and a super capture! I love the expression; I have actually seen posters of giraffes with a similar expression. This would be so great enlarged and hanging! While I said tigers are my fav big cat, giraffes are my fav wild animal that isn't a cat. This is wonderful!

I can't believe I missed offering my congrats on this image Steven! It was my fav until the turtle, but this one is right behind it. I just love everything about this, and in my opinion, it should have a gold medal under it! If I don't already have it in my favs (and I think I do), then it is going in there now!
