la girafe est un animal gracieux mais qui n'est pas poli, elle tire souvent la langue :P (pour attraper les branches)
je trouve qu'elle est belle de profil, par contre de face, c'est un peu plus curieux comme animal...

Il s'agit de l'animal le plus grand en hauteur, pouvant, grâce à son cou tout en longueur, atteindre jusqu'à 5,50 m ou même 5,80 m. Cependant celui-ci ne comporte pas plus de vertèbres (7, de plus ou moins 40cm chacune) que celui des autres mammifères (ou que l'homme).
Son poids est de 950 à 1100 kilogrammes pour les femelles et peut aller jusqu'à 1500 kg pour les mâles.
Son espérance de vie est de l'ordre de 25 ans

***

the giraffe is a gracious animal but which is not polished, it often put out its tongue :P (to catch the branches)
I find that it is beautiful of profile, on the other hand seen by front, they are a little more curious...

It acts of the largest animal in height, being able, thanks to its neck all in length, to reach up to 5,50 m or even 5,80 meters. but this one does not comprise more vertebrae (7, of more or less 40cm each one) that that of the other mammals (or that the man). Its weight is 950 to 1100 kilogrammes for the females and can go up to 1500 kg for the males. Its life expectancy is about 25 years

Bonjour Jonathan, j'adore les girafes et cette photo est superbe avec les trois plans délimités par les trois girafes. Les couleurs sont très belles, le champ de profondeur est très bon, et qui plus est, cette photo est amusante. Merci!

I think this is a really effective composition with the three giraffes. Sharpness and color and exposure all look excellent.

Hello Jonathan, this is a wonderful shot and the dof is perfect. The composition is very nicely done with a diagonal flow of heads towards the corner. Exposure is perfect, and light is very nice - coming from the left. Really a superb shot. tfs Rgds, Necip

Hi Jo,

Perfect composition and colours.
Well done.
