A very cute pose of this young giraffe, Anne.
I do like the warm sunlight on his coat, highlighting the beautiful pattern of the patches on the Rothchild giraffe.
Your subject stands out well against the misty BG.
Merci pour l'envoie.

bjr Anne
super photo.
D'une part la pose est superbe
D'autre part la lumiere et les tons sont tels que la giraffe se detache superbement.
J'ai adore etre a Nakuru.
Merci du partage

Hi Anne,
What beautiful color! I would like to visit Nakuru's lake one day. I like the misty background it gives it a mystic feeling.
Well done and tfs.
