    So, what was he/she sniffing, licking, er….eating? Was it another animal’s urine? My goats do that all the time when they go into heat.

    Great caption!

    BTW … Congratulate your British friends for me in terms of Justin Rose winning the US Open.

  5. Ah aha! My Mum LOVES giraffes. I remember this one time that we went to the zoo and the giraffe spat at me. Ahh memories.

  6. I am now grinning ear to ear – that is a fabulous shot!! I feel like he or she is going to yell out, “help me, I’m stuck!” 🙂

  7. The Guat says:

    Awesome. Love this shot.

    Nice one! I have never seen a giraffe picture like this 🙂 This one must be be a real gymnast!

  11. Louella says:

    Gorgeousness!! Love it… Wonderful photograph. I’m sure if you red bubbled it, people would buy the print. I for one certainly would. So if you get around to doing that, let me know the link 🙂

    Miss Lou

  12. Giraffes are so cool! Great shot, TBM.

  13. lynnsbooks says:

    Well, curiously enough I was reading about giraffes not long ago, don’t even ask why, and although you tend to think of them as having this really long neck, in actual fact there legs are so long that this is how they have to reach ground level! I never would have thought it but now not only have I read about it but I’ve seen the pictures as well.
    Lynn 😀

  14. That’s me trying to touch my toes:-)
    This photo made me smile.

    He he he…. 🙂 great shot. Thanks and Love, nia

  16. Brilliant but it does remind me of myself as I am constantly slipping and falling over!

    • TBM says:

      I’m extremely accident prone myself. On my walk this morning I noticed a scar on my arm and it took me a couple of minutes to remember which fall caused it.

  18. winsomebella says:

  19. winsomebella says:

    Not sure how that cup snuck into my comment!

  20. Giraffes are so cool 🙂
