An amazing encounter with a giraffe, by Adine Roode

It was late afternoon just recently, when I drove past the towering figure of a giraffe lying down. I was immediately struck by the magnificent colours of this animal. They were just too beautiful for me not to stop and take pictures with my iPhone. As I started clicking away, the giraffe started to get up from its position. Me, enamoured by the sight, simply kept clicking away.

I am always in total awe at how in control these tall animals are of all their body parts and how well they blend into their environment.  I was once again reminded of the magnificence of the creation that is the giraffe – the tallest mammal. It’s absolutely amazing to see how tiny we, as humans, are in comparison to this animal. Truly fascinating!
