Caught quickly, without much forthought -- the moment in time as it were. Only changed the saturation and used USM.

Wild Animal Park, San Diego?

The term s n a p s h o t is sometimes used in a derogatory way. Here, IMO, we have an oppurtunity to use it fittingly and as a compliment. Really, half the charme of this image is the very manner of this photo. It's utterly topical AND hilariously real and entertaining. To me, it is educational as well.
After all, now I know what it looks like inside a giraffe's mouth!

Very funny. Great composition. The focusing shows great interaction between the three. The way it's lit the giraffes' head almost pops out of the shot. Beautiful

What a nice candid. I love the expressions on their faces and the fact that you caught 3 (and 1/2) giraffes in the picture.

LOL that woman looks genuinely freaked out at that tongue coming at her. Shot could be a tad darker for my liking, tho thats more a preference. Great capture, certainly in my top 3!

This photo is a little dark and doesn't seem sharp enough.
