Not an earth shaker.  Just thought to share.  Processed today.  More about feeding behaviour and the delicacies of their diets.  

Have provided a High Rez link to hopefully show that.  Just thought that a higher rez link lets you see so much more.  Image to me being more about the foliage and little details we often overlook. 

Techs.  OMG.  13 year old D300 and 500 Af-SII Nikon.

Please feel free to view the uncompressed image, and thanks for looking.

Hope all safe!

I love the way the giraffes delicately manage to eat the sweet acacia leaves with their lips and tongues between those lethal thorns! This pretty girl is showing how its done. Lovely behaviour illustration, Dave!

Those thorns are obvious, and the giraffe’s ability to avoid them is impressive, Dave. Great capture of the behavior!!!

Great close-up uncompressed-such detail! Bugs in her eyes too! Amazing prickly meal, well shown. A nice story-teller.
