"The giraffe, in their queer, inimitable, vegetative gracefulness, as if it were not a herd of animals but a family of rare, long-stemmed, speckled gigantic flowers slowly advancing" ~ Isak Dinesen
This photo was taken in Etosha National Park in Namibia, Africa.

I know you are expecting horse photos from me but I could not resist sharing one more photo from my Africa trip.
As much as I enjoyed all the game and birds that we saw I have to admit I was the most captivated by the giraffes. These creatures are so unusual and elegant they are truly one of nature's triumphs! We were lucky enough to see several good sized herds of giraffes close up. See more giraffes here and all the Africa galleries at this link. Drop me a note and let me know which ones you like best, I always enjoy hearing which ones people pick!
