Another picture from the Zoo of Amneville, which is really a fantastic place. I took this picture around miday, while eating. There is a huge terrasse in the restaurant, where you have a splendid view on the African plain. Girafes, zebras, ostriches, and some other animals whose english name I don't know. So, while you are eating, you can watch a fight between two young girafes, or look at the Crowned Cranes cleaning their beautiful feathers.

This girafe was standing very close to the terrasse. Her head was approximately at the same height as my own, approximately 3 meters away. She was eating away the bark from the tree, stretching out the neck and the tongue to go as high as possible. And, each time she got a piece of bark, she chewed it for some minutes. This is what she was doing when I took the picture. I like her pose here, I thought it was funny.

Hi Valerie.
What a nice picture and captured scene. I only could not imagine (without your note) where were you at the shooting moment? -: ))). Really great POV. Excellent exposure despite the strong back light. I also like perfect details, sharpness of the image and DOF. My compliments and best wishes.
