Giraffes seem like such peaceful creatures, which can be seen in their eyes.
Giraffes eyes alays remind me of a mix between cow/deer/horse eyes all of them share the same gentleness almost tempered with a little sadness
There does seem to be a hint of sadness…I bet their lives in the wild aren’t easy.
Oh my goodness—I want one!!! I agree that their eyes are cow/deer/horse like!!! You can get lost in them!!!! Pools of liquid emotion!!!
Liquid emotion…I like that!
Yea I agree
What a great, close up shot.
They sure have gentle eyes. It feel as if you can cuddle them.
I know what you mean. They are gentle souls.
How did you get so close? Do you have a good zoom on your camera?
My zoom is decent, but I was surprised how close the jeeps could get to the animals. I couldn’t reach out and touch the animals, but we were closer than I imagined we would be.
they are such beautiful creatures. And with eyes to die for !!!! 🙂
I couldn’t agree more!
It’s amazing that you got such a closeup shot! Wow!
I imagine one would still need to keep a pretty good distance so as not to get in the path of a kicking leg or their head swinging around.
I’m trying to picture getting whacked with his neck. That would be kinda funny.
I loveee Giraffes, they are so graceful 🙂
They have a way about them
And the eyelashes…
I love them 🙂
I agree, giraffes have lovely eyes and they’re lashes are so rich and full. I think ostriches and emu’s have pretty eyes too.
I haven’t seen too many ostriches or emus. When I do though, I’ll be sure to check out their eyes.
Looks like it’s in the middle of some sort of deep reflection – in reality I suppose it’s just enjoying munching on the leaves!
He seemed like the leaves were delicious.
