This photo was taken in the Living Desert Zoo in Palm Desert, CA. It was originally a whole head portrait, but I cropped in when I realized the reflection of the young giraffe in front was visible in the eye.
Camera: Canon EOS 60D, Exposure Time: 1/320, Aperture: f/8, ISO: 160, Focal Length: 190mm

Amazing capture and I have never heard of this zoo!
Thanks Cindy! It’s possibly the nicest zoo I have ever been to. Large enclosures and good habitats. If you’re at all familiar with the Palm Desert area, it’s on Portola Ave, about a mile south of Hwy 111.

Yes definitely, thanks Jane
