Giraffes know that two heads are better than one.
You can look in two different directions at the same time!
And one head can be used to prod the other along.
Three heads are even better than two,
but more prone to go in different directions.
Eventually they all reach accord.
But four heads?
That’s just too confusing!
Cheers to you from the elegant, intelligent giraffes~

Giraffes are so wonderful animals and have the most beautiful eyes. You are so lucky to see them in their right element, the nature, and thank you so very much for sharing Cindy 😀
Yes they are inquisitive, curious, friendly, magnificently-elegant creatures!
Nice photographs. 🙂
I could watch giraffes for hours. Love their combination of elegant spotted pattern and awkward, gangly body. Cindy, thanks for all the multiple choices in head “shots.”
Showed this to Mom and she used great words to describe your giraffes. Proud and majestic. 🙂
Perfect descriptors! Thank your mom & say hello for me! <3
They are incredibly interesting animals to observe and interact with in the wild. So happy you like them Robin~
Giraffes are so awesome to me. Graceful and fun to observe. Nice captures, Cindy.
Yes, couldn’t agree with you more Lynne!
Spirits aloft but not aloof…..lovely photos, Cindy!
Your descriptor captured their essence beautifully Cynthia~ <3
They are so beautiful and graceful.
With these big, brown, soulful eyes!
Sweet aren’t they?
I love giraffes! They are elegant animals! Awesome photos! Hugz Lisa and Bear
I wonder what the G’s would make of Bear!!!!! 😉
Where were these taken?! At that open park down your way or on an actual safari?!
I am in South Africa. These were taken in Kruger National Park. We are self driving and are now on the outside of the park.
Thinking of you and your family my friend on this Memorial Day~
Wonderful. Can’t wait to get to Africa!
Considering your gypsy soul, sister, I know you will be here very soon! <3
Thanks much & cheers~
Great set of photos! Giraffes a so strange and fun.
They really are interactive and curious. Look right at you, walk towards you. Truly magical!
You couldn’t possibly have chosen a better animal to feature to put a smile on my face Cindy and I love the pictures. I love elephants but there’s something special about the giraffe.
xxx Huge Hugs xxx
I agree with you. Giraffes have some sorty of undefinable aloof approachability!!!
Giraffes always look to me like they’re up to something! Wonderful photos, Cindy!
They do don’t they! Always looking like spies to the horizon! 😉
Two heads AND eight legs! LOL – Fabulous photos and a great story to go with it!!
Love your blog!!
Thanks much Carmen. Giraffe’s just make their own funny stories!
You had me there for a second, Cindy 😀 Happy Sunday <3
Laughing, yes I did a double take too!
Amazing giraffes and photos!
Very photogenic critters!
Giraffes are rather amazing creatures, aren’t they? Their reticulated patterns are beautiful and those eyelashes – wow! I remember being amazed at their black tongues! Great pics, Cindy!
Their movements are unlike any other creature. They ungulate along in a most unusual manner, and when they run it is fascinating to watch! Recently I was looking over The Sabie River at the bush, when I spied a giraffe head poking out of the trees!!!
They are amazing and unique creatures, probably the tallest on earth? How cool to see a head popping up over the trees!
Such beautiful creatures and great photos! 🙂
Thanks much Better and enjoyed your most recent review~
What a wonderful trip Cindy. You must be having the time of your life. Thanks for taking us along.
You are a wonderful traveling companion Wally & hope all is well with you and yours~
We are doing well, thank you for your well wishes.
Great title and even better pics!
They are such beguiling creatures! Cheers to you Antionette~
Too funny! Giraffes are like nature’s clowns…so gangly and goofy. I love them…and I love your photos of them!
Having some great laughs over at your blog as wel my friend!
Glad I could reciprocate!
Beautiful pics and enjoyable narrative Cindy.
Happy you enjoyed!
Cindy, they are beautiful!
Thank you for sharing your pictures. They communicate how valuable these guys are beyond any measure. Blessing.
Yes. Harming them for trophies or pleasure is talentless and cruel. They are curious and unafraid.
What GORGEOUS captures – seeing giraffes in Africa would have to be one of my fondest memories of my times there. 🙂
Yes, they are simply delightful to watch, not only because of the way they move and interact as a group, but because of the way they interact with you! They are quite curious about us.
Terrific shots, Cindy. Safaris are life-changing!
Thanks and they are~
Fantastic photos Cindy.
Cheers & thanks Pauline. I was just enjoying your beach benches series~
Are you home yet Cindy?
OMG! The first picture😱I almost thought there were two headed giraffes on the planet. Then better sense prevailed and I counted the legs. Beautiful photography👍😇
Laughing, almost an optical illusions until you see the legs!!! 🙂
Fabulous! It must be very moving to be among such beautiful and graceful animals. Your trip sounds wonderful.
Spotting wild animals in their natural environment is probably my most favorite activity. Antarctica & Africa are the two places that I have seen that are the best for this. Cheers to you my friend & hope all is well with you~
Yes, I can see why that is such a wonderful way to spend your time – and we all benefit from the photos of your endeavours!! Cheers back, and yes, all well here, thanks 🙂
Ah, thanks to your efforts Cindy, these photos brought back memories of my close encounter with a giraffe. I visited a safari around Santa Rosa, CA and a giraffe waltzed right up to the vehicle we tourists were riding in and spent a good while rubbing him/herself against the car! Giraffes are a truly amazing sight, and I consider myself fortunate to see one that up close! <3 ~Lynn
Oh, that would be wonderful to get that close! They come up to the car in Africa, but not in petting distance! 😉
Elegantes animales 🙂 aunque para beber tienen que hacer auténticos ejercicios gimnásticos. Las fotos son estupendas porque nos acercan los detalles para que podamos deleitarnos en ellos.
Son animales hermosos y estoy muy feliz usted esta de acuerdo ! Muchas gracias ~
Such magnificent animals and beautiful photos Cindy!! 🙂
Very happy you enjoyed them!
That first picture was creepy,2 heads? Now thinking about it I might need another one…… where do you take those shots? You have no scare in you
You and my mother thought the two heads were creepy. Laughing…….These are taken in South Africa. I could do with another head too!
will you take me to one of those places,me and your mother you said…hell that is even more creepy
A two headed giraffe would make a great chess piece. 🙂
Keep the eyes off the rooks!
Wow, they are handsome animals!
I love em! Wish we had them at The Holler! 😉
The hummingbirds would love them!
I loved these, especially the captions xD
Awwww, thanks! <3
Excellent framing, Cindy…. I find giraffes very interesting…with majestic necks…. 🙂
They are most incredible, shy and gentle creatures~
Did you go to AFRICA?
Still here actually!
I had no idea. Wonderful!!!
How beautiful, Cindy. They look so relaxed and beautiful. Pawkisses 🙂 <3
Back to U 2, 2! <3
These are fantastic and a great title too!
Thanks! I was just over reading your Hotel Giraffe post! Loved it~
Thank you Cindy. 🙂
Cuz, that 2-headed giraffe has 8 legs !!!!! Looks like you’re having a great time, Cindy. Enjoy!
No fair counting cuz! Hope you are well~
I love giraffes too, which is why I think you’ll love this picture of a three headed giraffe. http://perfectlytimedphotos.com/perfectly-timed-photo/popular/35513-swiss-army-giraffe
By the way, it was the lovely background on your blog that inspired me to look into how to dress up my own. I’m rather pleased with the result. You can learn a lot just by paying attention to other people’s stuff. Oooh, life lesson, or as one of my literature professors would put it, A Great Truth.
Yes, I have learned so much from other bloggers. I read a lot of blogs now and they are important to me. They have replaced mass media in informing me about the world. They entertain, educate, move and relax me. It is like the blogging media network. I am fully immersed in this blogging network and I value it immensely! Glad you are a part of it~
These wonderful photos made my heart smile and my five year old great-grandson giggle and grin. TY.
Oh YAY!!!! Love to make the kiddies ( and their grandfather) smile! 🙂
Too funny, Cindy. Thanks for making me chuckle…
Thanks for letting me know you did!
I love giraffes!
I see you’re enjoying the African magic to the fullest! Wonderful and gracious creatures beautifully pictured! <3
It is quite an amazing place isn’t it!
It is! I so miss the nature in Africa.
I wish I had two heads. 🙂
Your one head is already too smart!!!! 😉
Cindy dear you are such a sweet soul:) your photography shows your love care and creativity:)
Your comments show your kindness and generosity of spirit! <3
you are a blessed soul 🙂
Such great photos! Wonderful!
Awww, so happy you enjoyed them!
Great animals to watch… when we lived in Rhodesia a local hotel.. Tods Hotel.. had a tame giraffe. I learnt so much about this animal just watching it go about its daily doings… what a wonderful, and actually powerful animal it is… glad you’re enjoying my country…
Your country is magnificent! I have been over enjoying your blog. I missed a lot of wonderful posts. Cheers to you my friend~
Lovely photos and lovely animals <3
Thanks much, and they are incredibly entertaining animals to watch in the wild!
So pleased you enjoyed both!
Liebe Cindy wünsche dir eine schöne Woche mit vielen lieben Grüßen in Freundschaft da sind dir ja super Fotos gelungen Klaus
Guten Morgan und vielen danke Klaus! Grub cindy~
WHO – Is that really a two headed giraffe or did you just capture that in such a great angle?
I think I see two – then I think – huh?
Oh Cindy – you really got me here. 😀
Africa does this to your eyes. I have a series of African Optical Illusions that I will post. I think it is a result of the animal’s camoflauge, which really does confuse the eye.
Will be on the lookout for that post! 👀
Magnificent captures of the Giraffes, Cindy! Two headed, Wow!
There are days when I feel just like that giraffe~ 😉
Amazing photography, Cindy!!! Beautiful captures! Love, Amy <3
What a thoughtful comment that is most appreciated Amy~
Giraffes are just the coolest animals!
They are curious and inquisitive too!
There’s something so adorable about them, isn’t there, Cindy? That God should ever have designed such a creature… 🙂
It is astonishing, to be able eat the trees from the highest trees!
I love your Beautiful Pictures, thank you very much Cindy….💗💗💗
Thank you more!
Truly lovely photos, Cindy, and fun narrative. Love that photo with the three giraffes all facing in one direction. I’m so happy you’re having a great safari. 😀
Giraffes are so accomodating to set up these synchronized photos for us aren’t they! 😉
Those Giraffes, have ears like Mine, we must be related.
Laughing, you must be very tall!
Thank goodness they don’t grow horns or tusks😞 and are safer for now.
Yes. Someone just poached a rhino nearby. He was rescued, but terribly injured. It is horrible to think about, because they are grazers and let you take photos nearby. I can’t imagine violating creatures like this~
Great Animals. Where were you when you took those pictures?
Kruger National Park in South Africa. We just left actually~
What is your next destination?
We are in London and then home. We’ve been traveling for over six weeks~
Awwww, thanks so much!
Oh yes! all these heads do get a bit out of hand don’t they?!! Imagine Wolfie with two heads!! 🙂 Oh wolf!!
How could he ever chase his tail! 😉
Absolutely delightful photos and post!
So very pleased you enjoyed it & cheers!
