Butt-Sniffing Giraffe

Well how else was I supposed to get your attention today? Let’s face it…Thursday is that day where we all struggle to keep our faces off the desk and wonder why Friday can’t arrive any faster.

But I wasn’t lying about the butt-sniffing giraffe, or at least, my warped view of the encounter.

So sweet. Until…

I was so excited to snap these two in what seemed to be a beautiful moment. They had just touched heads and I grabbed the camera as their necks glided past each other.

Until giraffe number two’s neck kept gliding, with giraffe number one stared at me as if to say “Privacy, please!”

“Pardon me” exclaims giraffe number one to the camera, “but this is a private affair.”

A good, serious whiff.

The verdict?

Well, I think we can tell from the facial expression afterward. Or can we?

The verdict? Could go either way. Is that a look of ecstasy, or agony?

One more day til the weekend, folks. Hoped this help get your head off the desk, if only for a little while.

Love, Marla

  4. They all look alike – maybe they are just identifying each other like dogs do? Have we met? I’m not sure – take a whif. Oh yes, we met last week at the waterbuffalo hole.
