Giraffe Sequence

Was talking to someone the other day about taking images of giraffes and he was complaining about not being able to get a close shot even though he was using a 300mm lens… So I was at the zoo the other day and after I shot a couple of shots on the Rollei (which I still have to develop) I threw a 50mm lens onto the D70s to see what I could get…

Lets just say I got a bit of a surprise when he came up and tried to eat my camera strap 🙂

I had to stop shooting because he came too close and was closer than the minimum focusing range of the lens…
