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. Years ago, I went to visit Kenya and of course I had to go and join a safari. I wanted to see the Elephants in the wild and the lions and fell in love with the Giraffes. Beautiful pictures, for the first one you should get nominated for an award like “Best Wildlife picture” or something similar.


  2. Giraffes really is majestic animals. We have been lucky to see them twice in the wild. First at Fathala Wildlife Reserve in Senegal and later at Etosha National Park in Namibia. Really hope to get a new possibility to enjoy their presence soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

    You really got some lovely photos on the animals. Have heard so much good about the possibilities to get great views at Kruger, will see if that is somewhere we will be heading later on. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • They are incredible to watch aren’t they. Some of the most amazing views of them that I have experienced were above The Oliphants River in Kruger where they would come to drink, oh so cautiously. They have to splay out their legs and bend those long necks down to get to the water and they look so vulnerable, fragile and beautiful. I am happy you have seen them in the wild. We had to go back a second time too! แƒ“

    • They are such wonderful creatures. Amazing to watch them. I love when they are surprised, they seem to move in slow motion panic, because they are so large, it’s a time delay to get them moving, but when they move, watch out!! Such elegant creatures แƒ“

  4. As always, I love your talent and the visual story-telling captured in your images, and then…. there is the next layer of this scrumptious dessert, youโ€™re elegant and graceful zingers of truth with a touch of icing. Always a pleasure!๐Ÿ˜โ˜ฎ๏ธ
