I took this snapshot at a local safari park yesterday - I didn't have much time to set up the shot when the Giraffe stuck its head in the sunroof of the car, but it turned out OK.

Taken with an Olympus E-410, kit 17-45mm lens (this shot 17mm) ; f/6.3; 1/125; iso 100 - some software shadow recovery in Aperture 2.1

Hopefully this image link will work:

Holy cow! Talk about a close encounter! Did he let you pet him, or was he more interested in muzzling through your bags looking for eats? :D

Giraffe!

that is brilliant.

ripe for some lol-giraffe quotes too.
first thing i thought - seeing that he's an english giraffe was "oy! mate! gimme some chips!"
could also be "i can has ride to britghtonz?
