These are photos from our family member, Ignacio, sent from South Africa where he and my son-by-marriage, Jay are now vacationing. I have never witnessed giraffes in the wild, so these are wonderful for me to see.
I love the fact that giraffes are both graceful and awkward, especially when they bend their necks to eat. I also like the way they walk, loping along in a kind sway because I believe they move the right feet together and then their left feet together. Did you know they have the same number of vertebrae as humans?
Here are photos from South Africa that came in my email in the last few days. Enjoy!
