    It looks like you were at the same level as his head. How did you accomplish that, or is it just an illusion?
  7. Not an illusion Haze, the park personnel allowed me to accompany them into the feeding station which was on the level of the Giraffe's. I think they were impressed with my big camera, not to mention my suave demeanor. :biggrin:
  8. Oh you smooth talker! Great capture. It looks like you were buttering up the giraffe as well.
  9. Thanks Brian, it pays to be a kindly looking gentleman.
  10. Quite amazing! This lens coontinues to blow me away if one can get close enough!!!
