De Beekse Bergen (literally 'the Beekse Mountains') is a zoo with a difference.
It started out in the late sixties as a car safari park, i.e. you could drive your own car through a park filled with exotic animals. Like a mix between a drive-in and a zoo.
The car safari still is a major draw for the Beekse Bergen, which these days also includes a small regular zoo and a cute boat safari.
An enjoyable day out, with kids and camera.
This giraffe was waggling towards our car, about to lick it. Tasty!

You have got a very close and good picture of this Giraffe.
It almost looks like it's in a good mood and smiling too :) ....TFS. Have a great day.

A touching nature which is not always easy to get a decent shot of a real up close and personal with this majestic beautiful fella. Lovely looks like he is getting ready to give a big giraffe roar! Awesome with softness and clear detail in the textures and perfectly exposed with your 200mm lens work. A beautiful animal portrait and what an expression! Great work and tfs.
