She was a little shy of the camera just occasionly peeking around the side of the tree. She is of course a Giraffe, a Rothschild I believe, the tallest animals in the world. Amazingly they have the same number of neck vertibrae that most animals have - seven. A bit of a fun image for midweek, I hope you like it. Sorry for just clicking lately and many thanks for all your clicks and comments, very much appreciated.
Best wishes,
Steve.

A very nice shot..
Great timing...
I would like to see more texture in that bark..
Just burn shadows at 3% and you start to see more texture appear..
Some poeple I know would get it to look 3D pushing the bark forward
and you can see Giraff droppin more behind the tree...
You just need to pratice and have more time...
