Gentle giraffes

.
Fresh photos from the Jerusalem zoo!
Even the shadows of the giraffes stretch toward one another.

In the same expansive enclosure below us were zebras, two white rhinos, and ostriches.


A minute later the position turned into this.
But that's as far as it went.

The post is for Camera-Critters and Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

I think giraffes are so awesome! Great photos!
(I turned off the word verification. I had turned it on previously because I was having a lot of trouble with spam comments and couldn't keep up. Hopefully it will be better now.)

I think giraffes are the most photogenic animals at any zoo!

You were at the right place at the right time for these nice shadows.

The Creator has an odd sense of humor, which is shown rather graphically in the giraffe. Of course, the giraffes in your photo have a sense of humor too. Just look at the shadows they have left lying all over the ground!

Giraffes, it has been a lot of time since the last time I saw giraffes!

Reader Wil said...

I love zoos, I love the animals in their original habitat even more, though that's not always possible.
Tha giraffes are so elegant and your photos express this so well.
Have a great week, Dina.
