Giraffe

These animals are easy to find… in Africa. They don’t seem to mind people. And they like to travel together. This makes it one of the easier photo ops. That said, it is always a challenge to avoid a shot that has been done before. Then again its hard to see the same giraffe twice. I’m not good at identification by the pattern of the spots. By the way, in spite of the long neck (obviously), giraffes have the same seven cervical vertebrae as we do. The bones are just bigger. Amazing!!
