I took this photo when she raised her head so one can see the water dropping, instead of the tipical shot, with the head down,


Kate Jackson June 21, 2005

Great thinking Luis! Such a brilliant shot. I just love her legs almost doing the splits and that water dropping! We never got to see giraffes at water holes so never even saw them with their heads down. I can't remember how you tell the difference between a male and a female. Something to do with the horns isn't it? #266643

This is a glorious image Luis, I got to see a giraffe for the first time this year (in April) but alas it wasn't in this wonderful location like you but in a nature zoo.
Such delicate animals - great work, love your gallery.
