“At Brookfield Zoo, where I drag my daughters about 25 times a year, they house the giraffes inside during winter—you can get close enough to almost pet them. I was photographing this calf when its mother came to nuzzle up against it. This photo was later published in the zoo magazine.” (www.weshootmemories.com)
