I see what you mean!!! I think I'd go with your first reaction, it is having a go at you... I have just been to an open zoo in S.A. & got some good giraffe pictures, though they were a bit timid due to a visitor whipping them across the face. (We are not all sane over here) This is a very good animal portrait, especially with the face on the young one, perfect timing. #657195
