Sympathy, Tenderness

While visiting the Nuremberg Zoo, I captured this moment between two giraffes. I loved it. It has such an expression of feeling and emotion. The smaller giraffe seemed to be so happy and comforted by the larger giraffe. I would be tempted to say that it was a mother and young giraffes because of the tenderness, though I can’t say for sure.

The day I shot this was perfect. It was pretty overcast, so the harsh shadows weren’t really a problem, and made for some really beautiful color.
