This photo taken in the safari park Knuthenborg from my car window – I missed the name of the cattle – perhaps someone can help me :-)
The giraffe properly better cloned away – but then would my title give no meaning – unless I was thinking of the little calf.

What a great shot Jeppe! I though it looked nice from the thumbnail, and then came the Giraffe making the whole thing look more "wild" and funny... Excellent angle.

Fun catch, Jeppe, and a creative thought to have the "bodyguard" association from this scene. The cattle (and giraffe) really contrast well amongst the green setting, and those horns are surely impressive. Well captured again - not sure about that gray strip at the left though, maybe cloning some grass over it would be worth a try?

What an excellent composition and a very creative title. It could work excellent even without the giraffe, but it works much much better with it. I like the uniform poses of the horns. Great shot, Jeppe.
I agree with Norbert about the line but it doesn't disturb so much.

Fantantic composition, no doubt. Good light and color.
Well done and seen.

Funny composition, Jeppe! This giraffe seems indeed protected by 5 bodygards... Well seen!

Very funny and great title Jeppe, very beautiful composition, beautiful colors and sharpness, a bit strange to see the blur at the top right corner and no where else, well done anyway, very creative.

Your titles are really very often what attract us to your photos, Jeppe. The good thing is, that we are rewarded fully when opening the shot itself. Your humour is absolutely unbeatable.
I think they are what the Americans simply call Longhorns, but of course they have a real name, someone will know.
And on the technical side I think it would have been better to crop at the bottom to bring the bodyguards as close as possible to the viewer - it would make them more menacing and remove a bit the impression that they are simply grazing. But a great shot it is.

A very nice title, Jeppe, nice composition, I like the uniform poses of the horns, the Giraffe is a very nice detail here. Well seen!

Le titre ma fait beaucoup rire et moi aussi j'aimerais avoir de tel gardiens...;))
Trés belle image pleine de netteté avec une bonne gestion des lumieres.Un petit flou sur la droite derange un peut en distrayant le regard mais cela ne gache en rien votre prise Jeppe.
Encore bravo pour lle titre et la prise.

Very nice shot Jeppe. And yes, bodyguard, but I can see it also as lot of delectable meat. It is realy nice to see this animals in a group on the eating. And a horns! Giraffe is realy OK. there behind those longhorns. I agree with nwoehnl about cloning that small strip.
Excellent compo. Regards, Don.

What a view ! Really don't want to borry them ! I think they are Watussi cows, aren't they, at my knowing it is a particular specie coming from central and southern Africa... Anyway, a funny but still impressive shot !
