Giraffes!

Good morning,

The giraffes at the Brevard Zoo in Viera, Florida, have a wonderful enclosure without bars. 
We had a fantastic photo safari as we watched and captured images of these beautiful creatures.
They put on quite a show for us, too.
We arrived at feeding time...
 ...and everyone knew exactly what time it was!
 We humans on the observation deck were at just the right height to carry on a conversation. 
 Yum!  The good stuff is straight up.

 The keeper is here with lunch. 

 May I have some, too?

 Is the grass greener on the other side?
 The giraffe exhibit was the highlight of our zoo visit.

 Enjoy!
 Lois

Oh, what a great series, Lois! I so enjoyed them. Lorelei got to feed the giraffes at the Indianapolis zoo, but was over and done so quick Sarah did not get a pic.

I have seen giraffes only a few times and only in zoos. Your pictures of these gracious animals are amazing!

Giraffes have always been my favorite. Something aout those skinny legs and muscular frame. Truly on of God's finest!

My daughter Susie is mad about giraffes. Whenever she sees them, she starts to giggle. Did you know that giraffes have blue tongues?
