Do I look like food?

Who ever said that portrait shots need to be of humans?

Taken at the San Diego zoo with far less telephoto deployed than was comfortable.  Seconds later, this fellow rolled his long, very long, tongue across the front of my camera and up onto my forehead and then across the top.  Good times.

    St. Francis could not have done better!

  3. Rey, What is it about this guy that makes one smile? Perhaps it’s because he’s smirking at us! Great shot. Thanks for sharing and bringing a smile to my face.

    Nice job with the crop Rey and isolating her face! Beautiful creature. Did you pet the camel while you were there? Petting a camel’s nose is one of my alltime highlights at San Diego Zoo!

      No petting. A giraffe… and a rather large one at that. This particular one was more friendly than the others, for sure.

  7. Nice. I spend a lot of my free time at the San Diego Zoo, mostly at the Malayan Tigers, but I do like the Giraffes too. They always have such great looks on their faces.

    Hey Rey, I know this is a giraffe :0)…. but when I was there, I got to pet a camel on the nose and it was the funniest thing. This facial expression just reminded me of that, that’s all.
