If I could give it more than 7s, I would. Lighting a bit harsh though looks warm, late afternoon light. Impossible to control anyway.
.....incredible! what a moment of tenderness in this image! It's amazing and...i love it! In addition the wonderful light emphasizes the colours perfectly!
National Geo Good magazine cover pic congrats.
Superb composition with great colors!
Beautiful. You really have the BEST wildlife photos.

The captured moment is a classic for sure Fred ..................... But the tree 'growing' out of her back might have been improved by moving a few steps to the right or left ...........
Tender I am adding you to my favorites. I am curious; how long did you spend and how much film did you take to get what looks like a once in a life time photograph? I simply love it!
What a moment you've captured Fred! I agree about the tree, but otherwise a wonderful shot!

This is fantastic! A sensitive or delicate moment in a very harsh environment. Love the lighting here also. Great capture!
Simone Maria Navarra
Truly an impressive shot, congratulations.
Fred, Your pictures are incredibly beautiful. This one is splendid - warm sun set light, great position, nice accacia tree. Are you a professional photograher?
Not knowing what your situation was, if you could have moved to the right and caught more of a profile I think that would have helped. Still excellent though.
Don't agree at all that the light is harsh... It is wonderful warm glowing late afternoon magic light and exposed perfectly. Love it!!! I do wish the tree was not exactly where it is though. Notice how the giraffe's leg ends up lining up exactly with the tree - that is the only flaw in the image. Think moving angle to the right with the tree to the Mom just slightly to the right of her rear would have made an absolutely perfect shot. Nice capture Fred!
Spectacular What beautiful color. This is another perfect shot. Well done Fred...
Lighting is perfect,Superb work !!! Regards
Again, great shot. Everything from the lighting, subject, dark sky and the mountain ridge in the background work well together for an excellent composition. The tree mentioned in an above comment does not bother my at all, as I did not even notice it lined up with the leg until I read the comment. --- one question I have is, what do you do for a living? These aren`t zoo shots and you are constantly downloading shots from the arctic to africa. Probably the best group of wildlife shots I have seen from a single photographer.
very great photo
Beautiful moment. I like the dof in this as theres just enough tree detail and good sky for background.
very wonderful capture
Mother's Love Fred, wonderful photo. You can't get a shot like this at the zoo thats for sure.
This is a so lovely photo.Nice nice nice.
lovely shot with interesting lighting, welldone, regards, RK!
