[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This pic was taken at Masai Mara. The focal length is at 200mm which will give you an idea how close the giraffe was. Just two to three steps and he would be near us. Unlike the other mammals, this giraffe was standing tall in our way. After sometime we just left him.

I hope you all like the closeup capture and thanks for spending your time.

Beautiful portrait whit a very nice light position to create an effect lights-shadows on the face that i like a lot.Excellent sharpness and natural colors too.Thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano.

A little too close for comfort, Sujoy.
All the same, it is a lively portrait of the tall animal with its harmless and innocent eye looking at you without malice.
The only nit is that you almost nipped off one of its horns even though I'm sure you had no space available in that part of the frame to be cropped off.
Thanks for sharing the picture.

a great portraite of pretty Giraffe, with great sharp focus and from great POV. nicely composed and presented.
thanks for sharing, Sujoy. best wishes
