Two heads~

Giraffes know that two heads,

work better than one.

You can look two ways at the same time,

and one head can prod another along!

Three heads are even better than two,

but prone to disagree about directions.

Compromise must be worked out.

Four heads can be confusing,

but giraffes will usually agree.

I wonder, why can’t we?

Cheers to you for the cooperative giraffes of Kruger National Park.

  1. It is nice to redo a post with great pictures. Nowadays we don’t go anywhere so we have to reuse other ones and you did it wonderfully with your comments under the pics. Love it!


  2. Thank you for the smiles Cindy! I love the playful tone to your posts lately. I certainly need some play and lightness in my life. I remember being in awe the first time I saw giraffes at a zoo. I hope to one day see them and the other beautiful large animals of Africa. to more love and laughter! 🧑


  3. The giraffes going different directions. Now there is a giraffe willing to stick it’s neck out, Cindy! The first ones I ever encountered were on the Serengeti Plains. I was driving around in a VW bug. They were tall. πŸ™‚ –Curt


    • Laughing….. Yep. They have reach!! I insisted we drive a sport-ut for or second trip. Jim booked a 4wd compact for the first. The elephants thought we were toys to play with, which of course we were πŸ˜‰


    • Well, I do photo shoots of them, which is super fun, and they are entranced by the camera, and like all children, beautifully photogenic. I can’t take photos when I take them places, because I am focused on keeping them alive as they tend to run really quite quickly, in opposite directions, to places they shouldn’t, laughing and saying, “No, no, no, no, no! Dangerous!” Two year old twins are tons of fun, and lots of exercise, but not so good at waiting while Nana takes photos! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

  4. I like to imagine the surprise, in days gone by, when someone would see a giraffe for the first time. There are a few stories of giraffes brought out of Africa as gifts to royalty of various countries and treated like royalty themselves, with their aristocratic faces and coats that look like pure velvet.


    • Can you imagine trying to describe a giraffe to someone who hasn’t seen one! Sorta like Plato in the cave. I doubt I could get it right, and I certainly couldn’t draw it, and even if I could, who would believe it?
