I found this moment too cute, the Giraffe peeking out from behind the tree looking at us, thought he was hiding behind the tree :P

Taken at the Delhi Zoological Park

Established in 1959 over 86 hectares of greenery, Delhi Zoo is home to more than 2000 species of animals and birds from Africa, America, Australia and Asia. Lying adjacent to Purana Qila it is a perfect place to see a variety of animals. The Zoo was set up in 1959. It is regarded as one of the finest zoos in Asia and efforts have been made to provide an almost natural habitat to the animals and the birds. It is a good spot for picnics. It has an early 17th century Kos Minar, which was one of the many, put up by Jehangir, son of the emperor, Akbar. As you climb up the red sandstone gate, you get a chance to admire the vast expanse of the Zoological Park. The winding pathways here are laid with the red Badarpur gravel, and the green shrubs demarcate the red with the undulating brown-green vast stretches of grass.

Enjoy :)

Hi Vishal ! What a cute and funny picture, I love it ! Very nice to see this big giraffe hiding behind a tree. Excellent details, POV and composition - colors are a tad too dark in my opinion, but it's a minor problem, still a fantastic shot ! Very well done !

Hi Vishal,
A funny picture, really nice. Nicely framed, great detail, natural colours. Just a shame about the fences in the background. I think another view could have been to zoom into 200mm (from 80mm for this shot) and get a closeup of the Giraffe's head peeking around the tree. Good note too, nice work.

Hi Vishal,
Great pose you have captured here. Spot on exposure has rendered beautiful saturated colors and sharp detail. This looks great.

Very cute image, no doubt.
Hope the animals are well looked after in the zoo, Vishal. Come to think of it, I lived in Delhi for 10 years but never visited it.
Well done and TFS.

Hello Vishal,

You're right! What a cute moment!!! The idea that the girafe thoght that she is hiding makes me laugh! Good exposition, nice natural colors and good pov. Maybe one thing, you cropped maybe too much on the left for the girafe's tail is within the frame... Nice work and TFS,


this is very funny!!!!!! excellent caption for a brilliant capture! TFS!
