Lunch Time

A giraffe is enjoying an afternoon snack from one of the tall feeding bins. If you look closely you can also see some of the vultures I mentioned yesterday sitting on the crest of the hill. You might have to click on it to get a better view.

These are lovely creatures. I could watch them all day.

An elegant shot of the giraffe

I guess giraffe snacks need to be up high! Now, those vultures looks rather ominous.

I'm extremely fond of giraffes and just loved your photo! And Phoenix Zoo is so different to Moscow one that I dream of visiting it.

Kate said...

I love to watch the giraffes as they walk because their movement is so fluid. Good shot of a hungry giraffe!

JM said...

Reticulated giraffes are my favourites! This one must be from northern Kenya.

Hilda said...

Aww, this is a wonderful shot, Sharon! Giraffes seem to nibble so delicately.

I would spend a lot of time watching these creatures.

Beautiful shot. The giraffe makes a nice frame for the birds.

Wow, what a great line created by the neck. The cactus looks so small in the distance. Great shot!

Pat said...

where else can you get a giraffe shot with saguaros in the background?

This is great! If the zoo ever has photo contests, you should definitely submit some of yours.

Very cool
Love the Black Vultures in the back and the huge crane looking bird on the left.

The composition on this photo is awesome. I love the way his patterned neck stretches across the frame and the cactus is featured behind him. Great shot! Looks like you're doing well with your new camera!
