Giraffes at the Zoo
Lens: Sigma 50-500mm Camera: K-5 Photo Location: Greenville, SC 
Posted By: GvilleRick, 10-27-2012, 10:55 AM

Took a trip this morning to the zoo to see a baby giraffe after having watched the birth Monday night on the Earthcam network. The father, Walter, was out when I arrived. All shots with the K5 and Bigma lens (some with a Tamron 1.4 TC as well.)

Closeup of Walter.

Mother (Autumn) and son (Kiko) appear.

Love the ears

Mother and Child

The whole family.

Thanks. It was fun watching. I only stayed about 15 minutes because of the crowd. I have more shots at the links.
