Description
Taken at Zoo Boise ( Idaho ) during their vendor appreciation day to thank the supporters of the zoo. We donate to their fundraiser, called ZOOBILEE, every year; they have live and silent auctions. Because the appreciation day is held after normal zoo hours I knew I would have sunset light so I went to the giraffe enclosure and was rewarded with very active giraffes. They were running, full speed, doing laps in their large enclosure, then they would stop for a moment and nuzzle close together and run off again! Not expecting this kind of activity I had to up my ISO to 800 to get to an action shutter speed of 1/1250 sec. to catch them when they passed into the light from the alternating deep shadows of their enclosure. It was worth the effort!
